LGBT+ Organisations in Property

As Pride Month comes to an end, we wanted to promote some of the organisations that work to make our industry more inclusive for members of the LGBTQ+ community all year round. With half of the LGBTQ+ construction population not comfortable being open about their gender or sexuality according to research by Construction News, we clearly have a long way to go and the contribution of these groups is vital:

  • Building Equality - Building Equality is an alliance of construction consultants, engineers, developers, contractors, and institutions who are passionate about working together and harnessing our collective power to drive LGBT+ inclusion in the construction industry.
  • Freehold - Freehold is a leading and unique networking forum for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender real estate professionals working within the real estate sector.
  • LGBT Property Professionals - LGBT Property Professionals are a networking event based in Manchester, whose aim is to connect all professionals of the property sector & raise awareness.
  • Planning Out - Planning Out is an LGBT network for professionals in the town planning sector.
