The Alphabet Collective (AC) is a community group which supports the social and emotional well-being of LGBTQIA+ people aged 18+ across Leeds and the surrounding area. We hold weekly sessions in the city centre which aim to celebrate and explore identity through creative workshops, discussions, networking, and recreational activities.
The AC was established in 2021 under the umbrella of the charity, Getaway Girls. Now, with the intention to expand and welcome a wider range of identities, the AC has transitioned into an independent charitable group.
We facilitate weekly social groups for people aged 18-25 who identify as LGBTQIA+. We are inclusive of those who are questioning or unsure about their sexual and/or gender identity and are seeking a safe space to explore that.
The group currently meets on a Monday evening, 5-6.30pm in Leeds City Centre, or 5.30 – 7.45 every fourth Monday of the month for skating (roller and boarding) at LS-Ten skatepark.
We understand people may be unsure about whether the group is for them, so are always happy to meet people 121 to get to know us and find out more.
