The preliminary work on the new website for the First Wednesday lgbt asylum seekers support and social group has been completed and the site has been launched at http://firstwednesday.lgbt
The website aims to be an information resource for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender asylum seekers in the Manchester area, and the content will be continually developed in line with the feedback we receive from new and existing members of the First Wednesday group, as well as from the partner organisations we work with.
The next event for our LGBT asylum seekers group is on Wednesday, 7th August – meeting at 10.30am in the short-stay car park at Piccadilly Railway Station, in readiness for a day out to Llandudno and Conwy in North Wales.
To find the short-stay car park, from the main concourse with the trains in front of you:
go down the escalators, turn right and down the next set of escalators,
and head outside towards the taxi rank.
Andy will be parked up, in a minibus, in the car park to the left of the taxis!.
We will drive over to Llandudno on the North Wales coast – it’s about 2 hours away. In Llandudno we can enjoy great views of the sea from the elegant promenade, have some lunch, walk down the pier (it’s a mile or so long and stretches out into the sea), and have a drive around the Great Orme (a huge headland which juts out into the sea).
We will then visit the ancient town of Conwy which has a castle and, if we like, we can walk around the walls of this historic place.
We will bring a packed lunch.
If you want to come please let Andy know – he needs to book a minibus! Obviously there won’t be a meeting in church on that day!
They are inviting all friends, supporters and people who are interested in the group, in women’s issues, LGBT and queer issues, migration, asylum, (no) border, human rights and social justice issues to join them for this celebration.
The event will have live music bands, poetry, performance acts, good company, and many other surprises!
