Liverpool’s collaborative, creative LGBTQ+ community.
We’re a very different model to most LGBTQ+ organisations and as such, it is really hard for us to find funding. Meanwhile, 42% of recent Queer Hub attendees reported that they often feel lonely, and 64% of said that they have struggled with mental health issues to some extent or a great extent within the last 2 years.
There is a lack of provision for LGBTQ+ adults in Liverpool.
In the last 2 years we have:
Welcomed over 1,000 LGBTQ+ people to our events from children attending Pride with their parents to LGBTQ+ elders in their 70s, and every one in-between;
Enabled over 200 LGBTQ+ people to march in a friendly, accessible group at Pride in Liverpool;
Raised the voices of LGBTQ+ people through our storytelling events;
Curated truly queer spaces that represent the diversity of our community;
Supported and promoted hundreds of LGBTQ+ groups, events and activities within the Liverpool City Region.
We have done all of this for the love of our community. But sadly, this model is not sustainable.
We can’t run a growing organisation on love alone.
