Allison Bailey, a founding member, raised over half a million pounds to sue the biggest European LGBTQ+ charity Stonewall, claiming a complaint she made about her employer being a member of Stonewall's renowned Community Champions scheme led to her firing and subsequently led to a loss of business. Allison lost the case against Stonewall after the court found no evidence her loss of income "was in any way influenced (let alone significantly influenced)" by her former employer's involvement with Stonewall.
John Nicolson, a gay MP, has received constant online harassment from the LGB Alliance, which started due to his support for a trans constituent in a BBC documentary. John Nicolson has recently been acting as a witness in a legal case against the LGB Alliance, and as such, the abuse has spiked once again.
The LGB Alliance also condones not supporting gay marriage, claiming in a deleted tweet that those who believe it is homophobic to do so need to "look at the statistics".
Malcolm Clark, a founding member, opposes LGBT clubs in schools as he claims it puts children at risk of "predatory gay teachers".
In a now-deleted tweet, trustee Bev Jackson acknowledged the LGB Alliance was created to exclude trans people from gendered spaces. To this aim they have attempted (and failed) to challenge the accepted interpretation of the 2010 equality act, which codified in law trans people's legal right to access gendered spaces.
The LGB Alliance actively campaigned to keep gay and trans conversion practices legal. On Talk Radio, founder Malcolm Clark claimed a ban was not needed as gay conversion therapy is rare in the UK, despite an Office of National Statistics survey finding that 5% of respondents had been offered it, increasing to 9% of trans respondents. Trustee Bev Jackson later confirmed on radio that they do not support a ban on conversion therapy. The LGB Alliance subsequently mass emailed Church of England clergy to attempt to drum up support for conversion practices.
The LGB Alliance campaigned against the now-dropped GRA reform proposals, which would have made it easier for trans people to correct the gender listed on their birth certificates. The LGB Alliance were warned by the advertising watchdog about the misleading claims in their advertisements.
Trans comedian Jen Ives was harassed at the 2021 LGB Alliance conference, being called a "nonce" and a "fucking pervert", and being denied access to the bathroom after the incident. The security staff at the Queen Elizabeth II conference centre refused to take her complaint. A detailed interview about her experiences at the conference can be found on YouTube.
When asked under oath, the LGB Alliance admitted that only 7% of their respondents identified as lesbian. Since this became public knowledge, the LGB Alliance claimed on their website to have issued a follow-up questionnaire, in which around 79% of their membership responded as identifying as gay, lesbian or bisexual. Other than a footnote on their website, there is no evidence of this survey taking place, the results of it if it happened, or any explanation of how their demographics shifted so rapidly after the public backlash following their testimony.
When an investigative journalist found self-identified neo-nazis among the LGB Alliances membership, the LGB Alliance refused to condemn them.
The average age of a director of the LGB Alliance is 67 years old.
The LGB Alliance is closely tied with organisations that campaign against the bodily autonomy of people with uteruses, most notably the Heritage Foundation, a major anti-abortion and anti-LGBTQ+ think tank. Founder Gary Powell has given speeches there, and trustee Bev Jackson has defended working with them.
During the Bell vs Tavistock case, the LGB Alliance campaigned heavily in favour of revoking Gillick Competence, the legal precedent that gives mentally competent minors the right to consent to medical treatment and access contraception without parental consent.
