DARD/ Rainbow Rural Survey

The Rainbow Project, in partnership with the Department for Agriculture and Rural Development are carrying out a survey to gather the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGB/T) people living in Northern Ireland.

Do you identify as LGB/T? If so, we are keen to know what your experiences are. This survey is all LGB/T people, regardless of where you are living, however we are particularly keen to hear from those living in rural areas.

All responses are anonymous and confidential and the survey will no longer than 15 minutes to complete.

I would be grateful if you would take some time to fill out the survey and please feel free to circulate it as wide as possible.

The Pride in Newry Festival 2014 will take place in August this year with the Pride in Newry Parade taking place on Saturday the 23rd of August.

It’s a mammoth time consuming task to produce the event and it costs a lot of money to put on so all help especially financial is much appreciated. If you know anyone or any business willing to add their sponsorship to the event please let us know.

It is planned that there will be a Pride Ball that night as well with details finalised closer to the time. Other events will take place in the week leading up to the parade.

Details will be published at a later stage.
