In 2017, the Women’s Programme began a pilot scheme to ensure that our work is relevant and representative of all the lesbian and bisexual women in Greater Manchester. This came about as a result of consultations with the community, and looking at our own data that showed the majority of women accessing our services were mainly white, cisgender and/or young(<50). In 2019 we produced a resource about the importance of this work, with an aim to share some of the experiences of LGBT+ women with multiple minority identities and experiences. This resource was a result of the learning of the last 3 years and make it accessible to those looking to learn more and/or improve their services.
This resource has been so popular, so in 2023, we refreshed and relaunched this document for International Women's Day 2023!
The resource does not cover all experiences, but hopes to start a conversation about how experiences can overlap, connect and should all be considered when looking to create truly inclusive spaces and services.
