This fun, creative and highly interactive workshop is for Black LGBTQIA+ young people (18 to 30) as part of LGBT history month events around the UK. 

Come along and take part in a creative, engaging journey that utilises a range of different group games and activities that help participants achieve a greater sense of wellbeing, increased self esteem and provides lots of opportunities to meet, network and experience joy with other young Black LGBTQIA+ people.

The workshop will be led by Dennis L Carney who has many years’ experience of Black Queer community development work and experiential group facilitation.
