LGBTQ+ disabled people – we want to hear from you!

This Pride month, we want to share what we are doing to connect with LGBTQ+ disabled people and venues. We want to offer our support to break down the disabling barriers that prevent people from attending events and being full and active members of their communities.

We know that disabled LGBTQ+ people can face discrimination and barriers on multiple fronts, so we care passionately about working to combat this.

  • This year we are creating a working group of LGBTQ+ venues around the country to share our expertise and encourage venues to support each other in their journeys to become more accessible spaces.
  • We were onsite with volunteers to meet attendees at Mighty Hoopla, and will be on-site looking at accessibility at Pride in London and a North East based community Pride festival.
  • As part of our place-based work in the Medway, we’re supporting a grassroots promoter to make LGBTQ+ events in Kent accessible.
  • 33% of our Mystery Shoppers identify as LGBTQ+.

Online discussion

We are planning to host an online discussion for LGBTQ+ disabled people to join us and share experiences of seeking to access LGBTQ+ venues and events.

We will not contact you again via this address following the event unless you have signed up to one or more of our mailing lists.

Sign up to be a mystery shopper and join our other networks

Our volunteer mystery shoppers provide us with vital feedback on their experiences of accessibility at venues and outdoor events. This year we want to collect as many LGBTQ+ venue or outdoor event shops as possible, as this is often the first step towards us supporting teams to improve accessibility.

We also run networks of disabled music makers and music / event industry professionals.
