GLADD is the UK's only organisation that unites and represents LGBTQ+ doctors and dentists from all over the country.
We open our membership to any doctor, dentist, medical and dental student who supports the values and constitution that GLADD stands for.
We run events in London and through our regional networks around the country. Highlights include our AGM dinner, summer and New Year parties and socials with other LGBTQ+ professional groups.
GLADD has a respected national voice in LGBTQ+ health activism and education, working with leading figures such as the British Medical Association, General Medical Council, Royal Colleges and Parliament. We collaborate with universities and the NHS to further research into LGBTQ+ health issues and deliver training aimed at empowering those working in and studying healthcare to tackle discrimination in support of their LGBTQ+ colleagues and patients.
