Gay Business Organisations & Associations


Bar Lesbian and Gay Group

The Bar Lesbian and Gay Group (BLAGG) was formed by a group of students at the Inns of Court School of Law in 1994. Over the last 7 years, the group has grown in size and now has over 150 members students, pupils, squatters and tenants from all over the country including those in independent practice and as the employed bar. Much of the original impetus was to provide a support network for lesbians and gay men at the Bar and especially for lesbians and gay men coming to the Bar. This continues to be one of its main roles, hence its representation at the annual Inns of Court and BVC pupilage fairs. BLAGG also takes part in the induction programme at the start of the BVC year and has sent speakers to university societies around the country in an attempt to encourage student to apply for the BVC. Most recently a sponsorship scheme has been set up similar to that run by each of the Inns of Court so that university and BVC students are now in touch directly with barristers who can offer advice and guidance.

Civil Service Rainbow Alliance

The Civil Service Rainbow Alliance (CSRA) was formed to enable departments to share experiences and ideas on LGBT issues more effectively making it easier to support staff in remote parts of the Country.

Originally set up in 2001, the first meeting on 12th January had members of the Lord Chancellors Department (now the Department for Constitutional Affairs), HM Customs and Excise. Both Departments had areas where it was difficult to provide a one to one service for LGBT members mainly due to budgetary and time implications.
