Sunrise, a grassroots community organisation, has released a survey to find out more about LGBTQIA+* specific services and experiences across North Devon and Torridge. They will be looking at what they currently offer and what the community would like to see locally.
It takes no more than 10 minutes to complete, all responses will be anonymous, and family members and friends of LGBTQIA+ people can complete the survey. It will be available online at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Sunrise2020 until February 28th and you can find it on their website and social media. You can also contact them directly to get a paper version.
If you identify as LGBTQIA+ or have a family member or friend who does, make sure your voice is heard by completing the survey by February 28th.
Sunrise supports individuals from diverse backgrounds and celebrates diversity, their aim is for all people in North Devon and Torridge to be accepted in a truly inclusive and welcoming community. Last year saw the second official Barnstaple Pride March enjoyed by all the community- “PRIDE March was excellent- lovely to see the local shopkeepers coming out of shops to support. Also good to see the Mayors wearing PRIDE badges.”
The date of the next Pride March and Diversity festival is Saturday, June 13th 2020 – save the date! Sunrise are also recruiting three people to join their Board as Directors. If you would like to know more or get involved, contact Sunrise on 01271 328915 or email [email protected].
