Upcoming fun times

international womens dayWe have our brand spankingly newly updated page on facebook, so go like it, and get involved with all the fun.

Coming up we have 17th Feb trip to Bradford Peace Museum, then 8th March a drama workshop day for International Women’s Day. Sooo much fun! …and it’s all free. (Kindly support by Manchester City Council)

So who is in? Contact Claire.holmes@lgbtynw.org.uk to book your free place on either or both events!


What’s going on for young lesbian and bisexual women today?

question mark and light bulb
In the new year we are going to be doing some research into the needs of lesbian and bisexual women, so watch this space for how you can get involved!


Where do we get our role models?

Well, by looking at the last 6 months of TV, you would be tempted to say- in prison! Wentworth prison on Channel 5 and Orange is the New Black on Netflix have provided us with fun, if a somewhat skewed image of  OUT les/bi people on our screens.

Check out Lesbilicious for a run down of the shows…http://www.lesbilicious.co.uk/orange-is-the-new-black-versus-wentworth-prison-which-is-the-best-lesbian-prison-drama/

But… whilst these are both good viewing, perhaps we still need more variety of women on our screens that reflect how we live our lives?


Sapphormation Festival here we come!!

On November 2nd we have the second ever Sapphormation Festival for women who love women (self-defined) based at the LGBT centre. The event is open to women of all ages, so see the website for more details and to book your FREE ticket: http://www.sapphormation.com/

Girl’s work, thinking about the words we use

Last week about 90 women youth workers got together to look at what great girls and young women’s youth work looks like. We uncovered (in a filing cabinet in the LGBT centre), these info cards, which were made (we think) by the young women’s health project (that’s us!) so click on the picture below to check them and the other pics of the conference out and see what you think…
