Thank you to everyone who has supported our challenge to the charitable status of the LGB Alliance.
As outlined previously, the case is a complex one, but we believe we have presented a strong case and are grateful for the opportunity to have made our arguments in full at tribunal last year.
The hearing transcripts are now available to download below.
Thank you for continuing to stand with us as we await a judgement in this case.
