Coffee club in SEWREC (in partnership with Pride Cymru)

In partnership with Pride Cymru, the South East Wales Regional Equality Council (SEWREC) invites all members of the LGBTQi community to join their “Coffee Club”. The event presently takes place every last Tuesday of the month 5.00-7.00 pm at SEWREC, St. David’s House, 137 Commercial Street, Newport, NP20 1LN and is open to people from all cultural backgrounds.

Discrimination, isolation and social stigma are some of the experiences commonly encountered by members of the LGBTQi communities. Hate crimes are on the rise as well. According to the Office of National Statistics, hate crimes increased by 18% for the year 2014/2015, 5,597 of which were classified as sexual orientation and 605 as transgender crimes.

Therefore, all members from the LGBTQi community are welcome to meet in a safe environment and share their experiences in the company of likeminded individuals. Tea and coffee are provided free of charge, yet any nibbles you bring along would be welcome.
