Celebrating and Elevating our QTIPOC community
As part of Bristol Pride Online, we team up with the wonderful team over at Kiki Bristol as they host their first-ever inter-city gathering of organisations supporting queer, trans and intersex people of colour (QTIPOC).
Following the events of the summer and the ongoing challenges of representation and visibility, groups from Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester and Brighton will be discussing the challenges, and opportunities, facing our communities during this time of uncertainty and change.
Setting the foundation for what will hopefully be bigger conversations in the future, when we can get together again, with more organisations. If you support the amplification of QTIPOC voices and want to learn more about all of these incredible organisations, tune in! The event will be streamed via our YouTube Live and on Facebook Live at 730pm
