This FREE workshop will be a relaxed, open and non-judgemental space to explore ideas around what makes a good ally; to understand and examine some of the ways LGBT communities and individuals can marginalise people within them and to reflect on how, as people within and outside of LGBT communities, we can best challenge oppressive structures and behaviour, to work towards creating more inclusive spaces for all LGBT people.
The workshop will be led by Chloe Cousins from Rainbow Noir - an LGBT group for people of colour based in Manchester and Youth Worker at The Proud Trust; Manchester's LGBT youth organisation.
Refreshments will be provided. If you have any access requirements, including around travel to the venue, please email Claudia.firstname.lastname@example.org
