The Relationship Issue

The Relationship Issue of Be Outspoken x West Yorkshire Queer Stories
Free Non-Alcoholic Refreshments & Snacks // Bar Access
Pride is a celebration of who we are, who we have been and who we will be. We as a community within the UK have more legislative support and freedoms than previous generations of Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic (BAME) LGBTQ people but are we having more positive relationships with ourselves and each other?
Please do come along if for instance you’d like to talk about dating apps. You may have found wonderful connections and/or no strings fun. Or perhaps you’re tired of apps because you can’t find the 1 or potential dates start conversations with WUU2 or Where You Based? You may have also encountered overtly sexual and racist attitudes or transphobia online or out on the various scenes.
Perhaps your mental health has been affected by trying to connect your BAME and LGBTQ identities together and this has impacted on your bond with your family. Or you may have found how supportive your friends and family have been in understanding, accepting and respecting who you are.
Potentially you may have been experiencing a negative mindset, have been overspending or increased your drinking or other drug use. You may have isolated yourself or tried to be the life and soul of the party to cover up how you’re actually feeling.
Some of these things will ring true for you, or perhaps you’ve experienced none of them and are going through a whole range of other issues. Regardless, let’s talk, find some solutions if possible and ultimately gain an emotional release from telling your story.
We want everyone who leaves Be Outspoken to Feel Positive, Uplifted and Ready to enjoy Leeds Pride 2019.
