Islington has a long history of diversity, and this includes the LGBT+ community. Islington Unison( formerly Nalgo) had one of the first lesbian and gay self-organised groups in the country. Over the years we have fought for the rights of our members to be treated with respect and dignity.
The borough was one of the first authorities to stock Jenny Lives with Eric and Martin. Our members stood strong in the face of criticism as we did when our registrars refused to allow a colleague to refuse to do same-sex civil partnerships. Islington Unison has led the way and will continue to do so. Wishing our LGBT+members the very best now and always.
