For many of the non-LGBTQ+ people who attend our events, their exposure to LGBTQ+ people and lifestyles will have been limited to media stereotypes and sadly also as a result of societal intolerance. The usualising effect of these safe and fun interactions is a critical part of our education outreach.
In addition to our Pride day events, we also organise and co-host a range of other activities. These range from quiz nights to school talks, public seminars and more. We have plans to increase our reach and range of activities, including exploring a Queer Film Festival, guest speakers and more besides. In response to the Covid-19 pandemic we’ve also explored new ways to build and reach the LGBTQ+ community on-line.
Another area of our work involves liaising with local schools, community groups, churches and local authority bodies such as councils and uniformed services. We aim to represent and educate, as well as building links and relations with these various bodies. This helps to foster inclusivity, to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ rights and equality issues and also to promote greater community cohesion, through shared working and understanding.
