LGBTQ+

Coming to terms and dealing with sexuality in the farming community can often be daunting and a subject not talked about enough. This section will help with contacts and support within this community.


Pride Month 2024

  • Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June. 
  • FCN have published a personal reflection about diversity and the agricultural community, click here to read. 
  • While Pride Month is about celebrating our different identities, we also have to talk about how LGBTQ+ people have a higher risk of mental health problems because of the discrimination we can face. If you need support, visit Mind for information about mental health support, click here.
