Bringing Cambridgeshire LGBTI communities together....

Local News

Nov 13, 2014


Just a reminder to those of you who have booked a place to attend the public launch of the Needs Assessment, which brings together key findings and recommendations from survey data and focus groups held earlier in 2014 to assist LGBT people in our community.

Our speaker will be Dr. Gary Abel, who will be sharing his experience of working on a large-scale academic study (jointly between Cambridge and Harvard) about LGBT individuals experiences of healthcare and their general health. In addition to the presentation of the Needs Assessment document, we will be showing SexYOUality’s brilliant film from their Heritage Lottery funded 20:20 Vision project on LGBT intergenerational histories. There will be stalls and representatives on hand from local charities and community groups for networking and sharing information. We look forward to seeing you at 12 noon tomorrow at the Guildhall!
