Rainbow Cafe Event & Flag Flying // Scunthorpe

Update : Abusive comments and aggression from the public towards the Rainbow Flag Raising. Click here to see the reaction to the event.

We received an email with the below event info. It is more of a support event than a Pride or LGBT night event. Back in the early 2000’s we had nights out and support groups. Perhaps this can progress into something more for the LGBT of Scunthorpe and involve them in doing so but personally a support event isn’t the most exciting or encouraging thing for a young member of the LGBT community.

I know we preferred a drag act and a foam party back then at the Baths Hall. Fun events with optional support and info was a lot more attractive back in our younger days….but we shall see. If you show your support to the other events perhaps it will show demand.

What would you like to see done for the local LGBT community?

P.s Don’t forget the free pride event at Queen’s Gardens in Hull on July 21st. Always a good day!


HERE’S THE INFO:

Rainbow Café launch event on the 7th August 2018 at 3pm finishing at 6pm based at Café Indiependent, Scunthorpe High Street.

On the day there will be advice stalls, raffles, cosmetic advice, activities and a chance to network with local supporters.
The Rainbow Café is a North Lincolnshire Council venture committed to providing a safe, supportive and welcoming drop-in for people who identify as part of the LGBT+ community.

The drop-in aims to ensure everyone has access to support and advice around mental health and discrimination issues and is a safe place for people to meet and talk.

The Rainbow Café is a community point of contact; we are committed to ensuring everyone has access to non-judgmental support and advice around:

 Positive mental health and awareness of mental health resources.
 Sexual health – links into local clinics
 Accessing pathways to counselling
 Discrimination issues
 Abuse issues
We encourage attendance from supporters, friends, family, carers, and anyone questioning their orientation, as well as straight allies.
