about lgbt+ hinckley

 

 

All things start with
humble beginnings…

We are here for you…

We started on social media in August 2017, since then we have grown and supported our local LGBT community. We are here to support you. You may just need a friendly face to talk to and ask questions and we are here to listen. We also will keep you up to date on everything happening in the area and in the wider community.

We are a voluntary organisation established to support gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people in the Hinckley area. We aim to provide a safe place where you can socialise amongst peers in the LGBT+ community and be yourself.

Meet the team

Our team maybe small, but it is mighty. We each bring a different part and skills to make LGBT+ Hinckley work for the community. Each member of our team is happy for you to talk to us about anything really. You can reach out to us through our facebook chat either on Facebook itself or through the integrated chat on our website.

We are always looking for people to join our growing community, please contact us and let us know what you can offer to our team: admin@LGBThinckley.co.uk

Events Coordinator

I’m a student currently studying A-levels in biology, chemistry and psychology. When I’m not drowning in revision I also volunteer as a member of St. John’s Ambulance and as a youth leader at a local cubs group! You can find me on Twitter & Instagram @thetrashygayone if you want (I hate the username too but I’m not creative enough to think of anything better)

This could be you!

This could be you!

Do you have something to offer and want to join our team?

We all lead busy lives these days and we don’t expect you to devote your life to us. Even if you can offer a few hours a year and enhance our already great team that would just be fantastic! All of our team members have lives too and work or study and fit LGBT+ Hinckley into their spare time.
