Queer Media and UK Black Pride this October will host Fusion as a day to celebrate all LGBT ethnic minority communication by programming a creative schedule of conversations with LGBT media professionals interspersed with LGBT themed short films, aiming to promote LGBT visibility and inclusion.
Our aim is to transform storytelling by telling empowering and inspirational stories of people in the black, Asian and ethnic minority LGBT community through different mediums.
Tell stories of endeavour, of overcoming problems, developing creativity and expression that would not normally be heard to help develop a voice for a new 21st century LGBT community.
We want to promote ideas worth spreading, make people feel included, empowered and involved through the event being interactive with Q&A sessions, video streaming and a Twitter wall. We want people to be inspired to become champions in their fields of media and expertise through visiting our event.
Promote understanding in society through visibility and representation of LGBT people, characters and stories in the media.
Fusion & UK Black Pride: Fighting for Equality and visibility for all..
