As you probably know, due the current Health crisis with COVID-19 we had to postpone our ParaPride live events, so we’re coming to you with an incredible online project to mark ParaPride’s first anniversary since we officially launched. We would be honoured if you could join our series of 3 events called ParaPride Digitals: Our Stories, generously funded by Consortium.
During these events we will explore in more depth the intersectionality of being LGBTQ+ and disabled, talking to people who contributed greatly to ParaPride’s success: our performers, partners, allies and supporters. We will be hearing from their stories of empowerment and authenticity, discussing activism and reflecting on the importance of supporting the more marginalised LGBTQ+communities. Moderated by a different host, each episode will be focused on a different category: Physical disabilities/conditions; Sensory impairments/conditions; Mental Health.
Sunday 24th May, 17.00 – 17.45 – Mental Health
Host: Smashlyn Monroe.
Special guests: Stonewall, Mental health & wellbeing network;
Stewart O’Callaghan Live Through This;
Karina Pound, Biodanza Teacher at Danzability;
Theresa Heath-Ellul, Founder and Producer of Wotever DIY Film Festival.
BSL Interpreter: Martin Fox Roberts.
We will be using Zoom as a streaming platform. To attend, click attending on the Facebook event page and we’ll message you the Zoom connection details. The events will be recorded and our amazing partners GlitterBeam Radio will also be broadcasting the events.
