Free Role Models programmes for people of colour who identify as LGBTQ.
Stonewall is delighted to be delivering free Role Models programmes for people of colour who identify as LGBTQ. This programme will be running three times: once in October 2017 to celebrate Black History Month, once in December 2017 and finally in February 2018 to coincide with LGBT History Month.
Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on what being a person of colour and LGBTQ means to them, and how they can play an active role in furthering inclusion and acceptation without exception. Our mission is to ensure that LGBTQ people of colour have visible role models in their communities and see celebrations of difference and intersectionality wherever they live, shop, work, socialise and pray.
At Stonewall, we believe anyone can be a role model. They don’t have to be perfect, on a pedestal, always senior or the same for everyone. A role model understands the influence they can have and uses that influence to create positive change.
