So I had been toying with this idea, to create a social group for LGBT men and women, who identify as from a coloured background/ethnicity for quite a while. As well all know, sometimes it can be quite hard to meet people from similar cultural backgrounds on the scene. So whether you're Asian, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Brazilian, Chinese, African, Caribbean, Mixed Race or from whichever minority background - it would be nice to get to pull you all together, get to know you, have some fun and share experiences.
We try to meet once a month. A restaurant in Soho, drinks or a club night every now and then, as well cultural outings, in the amazing city that is London. You know, Boris Bikes, an exhibition, hyde park, museums, etc. If there's anything you'd like to recommend to do, I'm open to suggestions too.
So as well as giving people the opportunity to hangout, make friends and do fun things, I also hope by running this group, we can also give someone the opportunity embrace their sexuality, grow in confidence, feel safe, welcomed, appreciated and one day, have all the tools you need, to simply live life, as you so deservingly should do.
All age groups are welcome!
I see this as more as a social group, than a support group. But of course, you're welcome to talk about absolutely anything! Come join for some gayness and laughs :)
You must identify as LGBT to be accepted as a member of this group.
You should identify as being from a minority community, to be accepted as a member of this group.
Offensive or harassing behaviour towards other members of this group, will not be tolerated and result in you being banned.
Any suggested meetups must be arranged with both genders in mind - male, as well as female. (This is not just a women only group).
This is a drug free zone. Anyone who comes to meetups or clubnights and wants to go off and get high, feel free to do so. But I will not take responsibility for your whereabouts.
Although I have set up this group, it is a group for everyone. So if you'd like to arrange your own meetup, please feel free to send out an invite. I have edited group settings, so anyone can set up an event. You're also welcome to host as many as you'd like, whenever you'd like. Non-coloured friends are welcome as +1's.
