OPEN DISCUSSION at Metal, Chauffeurs Cottage, St Peters Road, Peterborough, PE1 1YX
Saturday 10th November at 1pm – 3pm
As part of the ‘Come As You Are’ festival and in partnership with Peterborough Pride, Metal and the Kite Trust are hosting an open discussion exploring What a Queer Peterborough for young people could look like? We are very keen to hear from anyone growing up queer or questioning in the city and surrounding area – what are your experiences and what could a better future look like for lesbian, gay, bi, trans, non-binary, queer, intersex and asexual youth in Peterborough? How do we make it bright?
The focus of the discussion will be led by who is in the room but could range from the need for spaces and places to meet, better programming and activities with young people in mind, to improved access to information, advice and support. It is an opportunity to share experiences, voice concerns and hopefully move toward solving some problems.
Everyone is welcome. We are very keen to hear from young people themselves, their families and friends, those who work with young people (eg. health, youth services, schools and colleges) and potential funders. We really need to hear your ideas and experiences.
We appreciate that coming to a public event and sharing this stuff can be scary or impossible for some. If you would like to contribute but can’t attend in person, drop us an email and we will happily share your thoughts anonymously on the day.
