CELEBRATING LGBTQI PEOPLE OF COLOUR
WHO ARE RAINBOW NOIR?
RAINBOW NOIR is a volunteer led social, peer support and community action group, which celebrates and platforms people of colour who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer and/or Intersex (LGBTQI).
We exist to provide a voice for LGBTQI people of colour in Greater Manchester and the North West. As a community and as individuals we are too often silenced or forgotten about. We strive to influence change within and outside of the LGBTQI community on a local and a national level.
As well as a commitment to represent and platform LGBTQI people of colour and our communities, one of our soul aims from our very beginning, has been to create a space of our own, places to feel safe, where LGBTQI people of colour can meet, hang out, form friendships and find community. We create monthly social spaces both online and in person.
Our mission is simple:
To create spaces where LGBTQI people of colour can connect with with community and affirm identity.
To raise the visibility of LGBTQI people of colour and our experiences in Manchester, Greater Manchester and beyond.
To platform our community's excellence.
All the work undertaken by RAINBOW NOIR is done by volunteers in their spare time. If you would like to donate to the work that we do, please use the paypal link below.
