Together We Are Stronger
Eight months ago I joined The Bradford Rainbow Club. I had no confidence and found it hard to make friends. As time went by my confidence grew and I am proud to say all Group members are now my friends. I would not ask for anything better. We meet every Tuesday on our video platform and we share ideas and we also have the opportunity to ask questions which is very important for us as a group.
I am extremely comfortable being open about my sexuality in this Group as the members understand my identity and their support and inspiration is invaluable.
It is very important that I am surrounded by people who are going through and overcoming similar struggles.
During this Global Health Pandemic The Bradford Rainbow Club and Free2B-ME stood with and supported us by ensuring we had enough essentials.
The Q&A session with John from The Home Office was so informative and factual. Special thanks to Shingai (Group Facilitator) and Wendy (Free2B-ME) for being there for our Group during these unprecedented times.
I have found being involved in this network personally rewarding too. It has allowed me to make a stand and be proud of who I am.
