Charities we support this weekend
Rainbow Noir Manchester is the very first organisation we supported when we started Le Social. They are a volunteer led, social, peer support & community action group celebrating LGBTQI people of colour right here in Manchester.
Mermaids has been supporting transgender, nonbinary and gender-diverse children, young people, and their families since 1995. It's one of the leading LGBTQIA+ charities in the UK, helping through their online communities, local community groups, helpline services, web resources, events and residential weekends.
We will also support these two initiatives in collaboration with Love Party:
Not A Phase - a small charity supporting the lives of trans+ adults across the UK, aiming to give a regular safe space for trans+ adults to meet, learn and grow and helping trans+ owned business and projects with financial and material investment.
LGBT Foundation & George House Trust Fundraiser - The Safer-Sex Pack (Condom & Lube Scheme) project was set up in 1994 and has been the longest running free service in the world. This fundraiser aims at financing over 90,000 safe-sex packs can be produced, distributed and facilitate a whole year supply, and also the continuous work that the GHT do as to fight to eliminate the stigma of HIV and support people living with HIV.
Thank you for helping us with our fundraiser. We also stock Queer Brewing (via Cloudwater Brew Co) - a queer-owned brewery providing visibility and representation for LGBTQ+ people, using beer as a vehicle for social change. Their Reign or Shine stout is a collaborative brew in support to the UK Black Pride and Black Trans Foundation.
