LGBTQ+ Group: Blog
Blog Post 2
On Tuesday 11th October, the LGBTQ+ Subgroup hosted an in-house event here at MAF to share our progress so far and present our plans for the near future. I am pleased to say the event was a great success!
There was a great turn out, including staff members, volunteers, and trustees who showed up to support us and the LGBTQ+ community.
The event consisted of plenty of fun, sweet treats, and pampering alongside the relevant up to date
information and statistics. Which ultimately resulted in some interesting conversations and some ideas
for our LGBTQ+ Suggestion Box.
Everyone really got involved with the spirit of the day, by making crafts, participating in our quiz, savouring our delicious homemade cakes, biscuits, and scones, and partaking in our complimentary therapies, all whilst listening to our updates on going for the gold charter award.
Incidentally, whilst we were in the midst of the fun and games, we received the e-mail from LGBT
Youth Scotland containing our Gold Charter Workbook and assigning us a mentor. Now the real work
can begin! We are all very excited and grateful to be involved in such an important project and look
forward to keeping you all apprised of our progress.
