IDAHOBiT (International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia)
Join us for some flag-waving and awareness raising! 17th May: LGBT folk will be “streaming” from various points to arrive at Speakers Corner (Brian Clough statue in Old Market Square). Notts Trans Hub, Nottingham Bitopia and QT Notts will be joining the stream from The Lord Roberts pub. Please meet us there at 12:30 and bring rainbow/bi/trans flags or whistles or signs to protest against violence & discrimination to hold whilst we walk to the statue, where there will be speeches at 1pm.
Other IDAHOBiT events
May 17th: There will also be an after party at the Foresters, or a free showing of Milk at Broadway. Nottingham BiTopia will go for a picnic if the weather is nice!

Notts Trans Hub sent a little email to Broadway asking if our favourite venue could make one of those downstairs toilets near the lift gender neutral – they said yes! They also signed up to the Safer Space Guidelines
Consultations, Awareness Raising, and General Moaning
We want to be able to bring the community together to get our voices heard, so please email us with any issues/ideas arising in Notts. If you’re cis and reading this, the bulletin is now going out to a LOT of trans folks so please consider including us in your consultation work and trans representation, rather than just asking one random person you happen to know.
Notts Trans Hub is a shared, non-profit resource for the full diversity of the trans community – if you want to be part of it, or promote your stuff, please get in touch
