The initalism LGBT is intended to emphasize a diversity of sexuality and gender identity-based cultures. It may be used to refer to anyone who is non-cisgender, instead of exclusively to people who are lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or transgender.
Manitobans for Human Rights (MHR) has taken a unique and innovative approach to form their Steering Committee. The committee will include individuals from community groups representing different human rights issues. Together the members of the MHR Steering Committee will collaborate, learn from one another, and then as a group, prioritize one specific issue that will draw on their mutual resources, strengths and contacts to bring about meaningful change.
