RAINBOW STORIES - YOUR CHANCE TO GET INVOLVED!
In partnership with Creativity for Change, we're really excited to tell you about a BRAND NEW project - Rainbow Stories.
We are creating a coffee table style photography book and web based resource which will be a collection of real life stories of LGBT+ adults aged 40 plus who live/have lived in Doncaster.
The purpose of the book is to create an artistic platform to share stories of overcoming negative issues and highlighting positive influences people have had on their lives being gay in Doncaster.
We want to challenge people's perceptions of the issues older LGBT+ people face and have faced - so that people become more informed about their journey and hopefully make it easier for others to feel they have the support to come out and lead a happy and fulfilling life at any age.
We are looking for people 40 years and over who would be happy to share their stories and photographs with us.
If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, age, where you currently live and contact details.We will be arranging meetings and interviews in a central Doncaster venue in the coming weeks.
This project will help us to continue our education programme that seeks to broaden the understanding of the LGBT+ community across the wider communities of Doncaster. Only by keeping up the education and visibility of Pride year round can we continue this. Its vitally important we don't become just a party once a year - we have a very serious side to the work we do.
We are grateful to The National Lottery for the funding to push on again with a new project as we go into 2019 and our 12th year.
