Passion Disco comes full circle

Corrymeela LGBT Retreat

If you are a member of the LGBT community and fancy doing something different, next month just could be the month for you, with the weekend of the 11th to the 13th of May being especially popular.

The Corrymeela Community is organizing an LGBT Spirituality Retreat down in Ballycastle from the 11th to the 13th for people who want to explore conversations about being an LGBT person of faith in a safe relaxing location with plenty of time for making new friends. Cost is £75 or what you can afford and you can book a place by emailing Padraig on retreats@corrymeela.org

On the same weekend The Rainbow Project in association with other gay and ethnic minority groups are offering a free programme for LGBT people from different ethnic backgrounds exploring their experiences of fitting into their family or communities. More information can be obtained from dean@rainbow-project.org (more…)
