Recognising Racism and Creating Community: How To Be a Better Ally

Thursday 20th -22nd October

As part of the celebrations around Black History Month, Manchester’s LGBT Foundation is organising a series of free to attend workshops around Black LGBT identities.

In the first workshop session on Thursday 20th October – ‘Recognising Racism and Creating Community: How To Be a Better Ally’ – Chloe Cousins from Rainbow Noir, a leading LGBT group for people of colour in Manchester, will look to understand and examine some of the ways LGBT communities and individuals can marginalise people within them. The session will also 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

Commenting on the upcoming programme, Claudia Carvell, Women’s Programme Co-ordinator at the LGBT Foundation, said:

“Black LGBT history, culture and people are often underrepresented within mainstream society and LGBT communities too. So to acknowledge this, LGBT Foundation wanted to organise a series of events that celebrate and support  Black LGBT culture and heritage, and raise awareness of the great Black LGBT heroes in our shared community history.”
