Join us for the latest in a series of talks by some of this year's Strong Manchester Women at The Pankhurst Centre,
Each year Manchester City Council celebrates International Women’s Day with their Strong Manchester Women campaign. The campaign recognises the achievements of some of Manchester’s women, and produces portraits which appear on billboards and posters across the city.
We're thrilled that some of these amazing women will be coming to the centre to discuss their work and their experience of the campaign. And they'll be talking against the backdrop of the original portraits, which are here on display at The Pankhurst Centre until June 2019.
On May 30th, we welcome Chloe Cousins, Lead Organiser, Rainbow Noir
Born and raised in Birmingham but grown in Manchester, Chloe is a voluntary organiser for Rainbow Noir, Manchester's social and peer support group for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and intersex people of colour. The group are celebrating their sixth birthday in 2019 and provide a vital space for people to find family and community, a place to be 100% themselves, something which isn't always possible in faith, cultural and LGBT communities. Chloe also coordinates the programme for LGBT young people of colour at The Proud Trust, Manchester's LGBT youth charity, where she supports young people of colour and works within communities of colour to raise awareness and help build confidence and capacity to support LGBT young people within their communities.
The talk is free. You can register through Eventbrite, but drop ins are welcome
