Ageing With Pride, Birmingham LGBT’s campaign to increase the visibility of older LGBT people in the second city, will reach its climax at this month’s Pride event.
Launched in August last year, the initiative’s objective is to promote social mixing between generations and address issues around the subject of ageism.
“We’ve got our eyes on Birmingham Pride as our big campaign climax,” says Campaign Manager Rico Johnson-Sinclair. “We’ve got a range of events across the weekend, including a walking group in the Pride parade - complete with confetti cannons - afternoon tea at Quarter Horse Coffee, and a Pride Sunday takeover at the Birmingham LGBT Centre, specifically for older LGBT people but for all to enjoy, complete with film screenings and activities to cater for all tastes.
“For those of you who venture into the festival part of Pride, we’ll have a stall there providing information on everything the campaign has to offer, and other services for older LGBT people which we provide via Birmingham LGBT, such as Ageing Better.”
For more information, visit ageingwithpride.co.uk, the Birmingham LGBT Facebook page or pop into the centre itself.
Ageing With Pride is still looking for volunteers to spread its message over Birmingham Pride weekend.
