Queer heritage is everywhere. What we today call Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer (LGBTQ) histories are embedded in the buildings and landscapes all around us. Pride of Place uncovers and celebrates places of LGBTQ heritage across England, ranging from the frontiers of Roman Britain to the gay pubs and clubs that remain important in our lives today.
Our Belper based Golden Rainbows group is a friendship and social support group for people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans and are over 50, facilitated by members of Derbyshire LGBT+ staff team.
he Golden Rainbows Research Project conducted by Derbyshire LGBT+ looked at the experiences of LGBT+ people over 50 years old in Derbyshire, particularly those in rural areas. The results of this project told us that there were many LGBT+ people over 50 who would benefit with a social support group for them, which would reduce isolation and loneliness.
We meet on the third Wednesday of the month from 1pm to 3pm. Our meetings may consist of an activity, we could have a guest speaker, a film, do a quiz or enjoy a games afternoon. The group decides its own programme, and Derbyshire LGBT+ will facilitate a programme that is of interest to the entire group.
If you would like to know more about the group, would like to come to a meeting, or want to know the programme details for the next few meetings, please get in touch with Derbyshire LGBT+.
We also have a number of other Golden Rainbows groups around the county- check out their pages for more information.
If you would like more information on this, or any of Golden Rainbows groups, please contact John Yate-Haroldfirstname.lastname@example.org
