LB Folx, Community Event for Lesbian and Bi Trans Women and non-binary people

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.

For lesbian and bi trans women and non-binary people

The Women’s Programme of LGBT Foundation is inviting you to our next community event for trans women & non-binary people who identify as a lesbian or bi woman, some or all of the time (including trans women of colour and trans older women).

An afternoon for you, by you, to talk about you.

Programme:
Taking part of Trans Mcr, we will be watching the great, multi-award-winning, documentary Mala Mala.
Story: "Nine members of Puerto Rico's LGBT community share stories of their sexual transformation and insights into the island's diverse transgender culture."
The audio will be in Spanish with English subtitles.

After the movie, we will discuss the representation of lesbian & bi trans women & non-binary people in the cinema industry.
