Intersectionnal Community Event, for Lesbian and Bi Women of Colour

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, and welcome feedback via email, in person or otherwise.

Volunteering & Sessional work

Our Women’s Programme is aiming to expand our services for lesbian and bisexual women of colour/BAME women.
