PCS believes in challenging all forms of hate, prejudice and discrimination and also works with other organisations as part of our campaigning to achieve LGBT+ equality.

PCS Proud represents members who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans or other non-heterosexual sexual orientations or whose gender identity differs from that as assigned to them at birth. Any member who self-identifies as LGBT+ can join and get involved.

Proud seeks to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and support LGBT+ members within the workplace, across the civil service and related areas, local communities and beyond. We attend many local Pride events and can help you organise a PCS presence at your nearest one.

Each year Proud members elect a national committee that oversees the work of Proud and work with PCS’s national executive committee to represent the views of LGBT+ members.

This year's Proud national committee is:

  • Chair - Saorsa Tweedale
  • Secretary - Liat Norris
  • Organiser (Campaign & Communications) - Yemisi Ilesanmi
  • Organiser (Membership & Admin) - Jordan David
  • Treasurer - Nic Jeffreys
  • Women’s Rep - Rose Baker
  • Trans Rep - Finn Weldin
  • Disability Rep - Heledd Muir-McCann

You don't have to be nominated to get involved. If you would like more information about Proud, including how to join, please email
