Why did we start the inclusion work?
Last year, we consulted with the community and learnt that, in the Women's Programme, the lesbian and bisexual women who were accessing our services were mainly white, cisgender and/or young(<50). Our job is to make sure our work is relevant and representative of all the lesbian and bisexual women in Greater Manchester. Your expertise can help us create the best possible safe and inclusive space for you and women like you.
The aim of the project is to help our communities around Greater Manchester have a voice in the LGBT community through :
- Intersectional Community Events dedicated to women who share multiple minority identities
- Awareness raising workshops for professionals and organisations who work with women with multiple minority identities.
To make sure we are going in the right direction we regularly ask you your opinion via survey.
You can access the most recent one here.
For lesbian and bi trans women and non-binary people
As promised we are launching our very first LB Folx Community Event!
This event is for trans women & non-binary people who identify as a lesbian or bi woman (some or all of the time), including of older trans people, trans people of colour and trans people from an ethnic minority background. An afternoon for you, by you, to talk about you.
The event will be part of Trans Mcr and will be between 4pm and 5:30pm. It will be a Conference-discussion around what does the overlapping of trans identity, gender and orientation mean to you.
You can already book yourself a free seat here (limited place only): https://
