Wild Rainbows

The Wild Rainbows LGBTQ+ group from Stay Up Late July 2018

I want to be accepted for who I am.

I have experienced hate crime.

Before I moved to Brighton I was discriminated against all the time.

I used to wear skirts and dresses but I don’t want to be picked on or threatened.

I tend to put a front on.

It’s fine if I’m with people I know.

It’s easier when people know who I am and see my personality.

It’s less worrying for me personally.

I can be myself at home.

Festivals like pride help us feel accepted. It’s a bit more liberal.

We want to feel proud of who we are and be ourselves.
