Newly formed Rainbow Alliance to host open forum


The Rainbow Alliance of Bermuda will host an open forum to advocate the “rights and struggles” of Bermuda’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

The forum will be held Friday in Queen Elizabeth Park from 12pm to 2pm.

The idea is to “help people speak out with the common goal of providing spaces for positive, grassroots dialogue”.

The group recently set up its own Facebook page in hopes of raising its public profile.

A spokesperson said: “The open forum will give people an opportunity to express themselves and their stories through whichever form they choose, including spoken word and music, and anyone wishing to participate is encouraged to e-mail rainbowalliancebda@gmail.com or inform a representative on the day.

“Should you not wish to speak, we still encourage you to take time out of your day to come listen to a part of Bermuda’s community which is too often silenced.”

For more information e-mail rainbowalliancebda@gmail.com or look for them on Facebook.
