Sylvia Pankhurst Gender Research Centre – Events Coming up!



Manchester’s LGBT Foundation is organising a free programme of events this month to mark its fourth anniversary and the end of its current funding stream with the Big Lottery Fund.  The two-day programme from 15-17 November will be made up of 3 events providing training for support organisations and celebrating the success of the programme to date.


Learning Conference: Engaging Effectively with Lesbian and Bisexual Women – 15th November, 12:00-4.30pm at LGBT Foundation with lunch provided from 12pm (this event is aimed at service providers)


Womens Programme Exhibition – 15th November, 4.30-6.00pm at LGBT Foundation


Women on Top: Cabaret and Open Mic Night – 17th November, 7:00-10:00pm at LGBT Foundation (travel bursaries available: email for more information)


In addition, this month’s FREE skills workshop is for anyone who self-identifies as a lesbian or bisexual woman, all or part of the time and is lesbian, or is questioning their sexual orientation.  This includes non-binary or gender-fluid people who want to access a women’s space.  Although we can’t check every event, we don’t list groups or events who we know exclude trans women or non-binary people.  We try to make our services welcoming and accessible to all; if you have any specific access requirements or suggestions of how we can make our services more accessible please let us know and we’ll try to help.


Kindful Eating: Putting Compassion Back on the Menu – This engaging and informative workshop integrates nutrition, compassion and resilience for helping people find peace with food and move away from body shame.  This workshop is for anyone who wants to feel better about their bodies, be more relaxed around food and rediscover pleasure in eating.  It is suitable for people of any shape, size or weight, any fitness level or health status; and is for folk of all genders and identities.  Join us to discover how enhancing body respect and making sense of social factors that impact wellbeing are powerful ingredients of the recipe to end the misery of dieting.  Places on this workshop are limited so do secure your place.
