HRRA looks to broaden its appeal

HASTINGS and Rother Rainbow Alliance (HRRA), the local organisation for lesbian gay bisexual and transgender people, aims to broaden its appeal as it enters its 10th year.

More than 50 members attended the AGM on November 9, at which a new committee was elected.

Chairman Dave Burke thanked HBC for its support and outlined the year’s achievements which included the launch of the Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender History Project, and the establishment of the new Trans group. There was discussion around priorities for the future including work on homophobic bullying, support for youth groups and social and fundraising activities.

Newly appointed co-chair Julie Eason said: “The new committee will be building on the energy of the AGM to reflect on the improvements that have been achieved for the LGBT community locally and nationally over the last decade. We are looking to broaden our appeal further this year, and in particular to focus on supporting the younger members of our community.”
