We’ve been working with Roisin Lavery of the Equality Commission for Northern Ireland on the new LGB web resource So Me. So Me stands for Sexual Orientation. More Equality.
In the Commission’s most recent ‘Do You Mean Me?’ survey, 53% of LGB people were likely to consider they had been subject to some form of unfair treatment, up from 34% in the last survey in 2008.
The new website is
“for LGB people in Northern Ireland – ´So Me´ (www.some-ni.co.uk). It’s a hub for information and contacts, but also a new way for people to report anonymously, to share their experiences without having to give their names, and to access information, advice and support in a personalized, safe environment. So Me is linked to social media that are easily accessible to anyone.” — Michael Wardlow, Chief Commissioner.
If you believe you have been treated unfairly, you don’t need to put up and shut up, ‘So Me’ is a new and additional way to access advice and information that could really help you deal with a situation in which you’re experiencing unfair treatment.
I’m proud to answer the question asked at the end of the video of “Are you in?”
Yes. I’m in
P.S. Watch out for Andrew!
