How do we make connections - BAME LGBT Women

15th August 2019, Manchester

Event Full Details:

WoC (Women of Colour) Shine presents..."How do we make connections in the 21st century?"

Finding people who we can connect with is essential to most of us but is it getting easier or harder as the ways of finding, meeting and connecting with people have changed over the years?

From classified ads in magazines to instant access via social media, how have things changed? Is making connections harder or easier for LGBT BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) women and Women of Colour?


There will be different ways to engage with the theme, and there is no pressure to share.

Light refreshments provided.

-This event is informal and a space to discuss experiences, specifically for BAME LGBT+ women-



This event is for self-identifying women of colour/BAME women who identify as lesbian, bisexual, queer or questioning, all or part of the time, including trans women, older women, disabled/neurodivergent women, women who are seeking asylum or have no recourse to public funds, women of all faiths and backgrounds, and non-binary/gender fluid people and transfeminine people who want to access a women-centred space.
