Rainbow Alliance Of Bermuda To Host Open Forum
On Friday, August 17th from 12 – 2pm the Rainbow Alliance of Bermuda will be hosting an open forum for discussion and support at Queen Elizabeth Park.
A spokesperson said: “The Rainbow Alliance of Bermuda is a collective of people supportive of the rights and struggles of the LGBT [lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender] and queer community of Bermuda, with the common goal of providing spaces for positive, grassroots dialogue.
“Although we already exist with a growing online presence through Facebook, we will be hosting a open forum event to start moving towards creating safer physical spaces for such discussions. The open forum will give people an opportunity to express themselves and their stories through whichever form they choose, including spoken word and music, and anyone wishing to participate is encouraged to email firstname.lastname@example.org or inform a representative on the day.
“Should you not wish to speak, we still encourage you to take time out of your day to come listen to a part of Bermuda’s community which is too often silenced. You can find out more about the event by emailing us, or finding us at our Facebook page by searching ‘Rainbow Alliance of Bermuda‘.
