As part of the National Lottery Community Fund’s Emerging Futures programme, Consortium and Wise Thoughts have partnered together for this important project. Wise Thoughts agreed upon and delivered the stories of 15 BAME, LGBTQI+ (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic origin Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer identified and Intersex+) diverse people / or Queer, Trans, Intersex Persons of Colour (QTIPOCs) based across the UK, dealing with or emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic. The stories “Emerging with Pride” were published on the GFEST 2020 website (and are still live) between Mon 9th to Sat 21st Nov 2020.
The stories, along with an additional 18 mins compilation of all 15 voices (a summary film), and recordings of 15 live webinar sessions can all be found here.
This interim project report highlights some of the intial findings and touches on next steps for the project. Please download and read the report here.
