This government is ploughing ahead with its devastating cuts to benefits, and concentrating on many disability benefits, including Disability Living Allowance, which many LGBT people who are HIV+ depend on to survive.

Housing benefit and other benefits which affect many LGBT people living in rented accommodation will also be affected as will cuts to many services which LGBT people rely on to offer help and support.

Come to an open  meeting to discuss how these changes will affect many LGBT people and what we can do to oppose them. Speakers will include a HIV+ gay man who has been active in the anti-cuts and LGBT rights movement for many years and will outline the impact that the removal of DLA will have on many LGBT people

We will also hope to have a speaker on Housing Benefits, who will describe the changes which the government has in store over the coming months.

We must unite as a community against these cuts and stand together.
