Hold an Equali-tea and raise vital funds for LGBT equality
Getting a group of people together over a cup of tea is a great way to start conversations (and surely one of our national pastimes?). Whether jasmine, Earl Grey or PG Tips is your bag, why not have a go at raising money at your next tea morning to support our work towards acceptance without exception.
Where do I start?
Location: You can hold an Equali-tea anywhere you choose. Whether that’s at home, school, work or at your local community centre.
Date and time: Whenever suits you. Perhaps you’d like to hold an Equali-tea as part of your Pride celebrations or get everyone together for a cuppa to show your support on the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia. It’s up to you.
What do I need: Just the willingness to get stuck in and raise awareness. Maybe one or two keen bakers too… We’ll also be creating a range of resources so check back in April and May for these.
Setting up your event: ask friends, family and colleagues to donate £1-2 for a slice of cake and a cuppa and encourage everyone to stick around for a chat. You might consider talking about how your community can be made more inclusive for LGBT people, where LGBT people and allies can find support in your area, or simply use this as a time to share experiences.
