We announced our decision to cancel Safe To Be Me: A Global Equality Conference on 6 April 2022. At the time of cancellation, there were 9.25 FTE staff within the International LGBT team in the Cabinet Office who were working on the Conference full time with oversight from a Deputy Director. The Cabinet Office and the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office worked closely together to deliver the Conference.
The request to publish details of each meeting held in preparation for the Conference and the number of staff present at those meetings can only be provided at disproportionate cost. The Conference was being prepared over the course of several years and until the time of cancellation, the Conference team held numerous meetings with key stakeholders within and outside of government, and through international networks.
