NOW in its eighth year the Hastings and Rother Rainbow Alliance (HRRA) is welcoming new members.
The HRRA works to support the local Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender communities, and has seen its membership increase by 21 per cent in the last six months.
Trustee Dave Burke said, “LGB&T communities have achieved a great deal over the years but people can still suffer abuse and discrimination - or even violence. HRRA helps us all work towards total equality and acceptance.
“We would like to increase our membership to include as many of the members of the LGBT communities locally as possible.
“If you are not yet a member of the HRRA do think about joining.”
The HRRA is holding its AGM on Friday, October 7 at Bexhill Youth and Community Centre, 10 Station Road, Bexhill, at 7pm.
Membership is free and to join or for more information visit www.hrra.org.uk, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 07505 819344.
