Hear the voices of Salford residents!
What’s the “Walk in my Shoes Project” you ask??
Well it started last year, during LGBT History Month. Its mission is to capture the voices of LGBTQ+ Salford residents of all ages, their experiences and their advice for future generations.
It was born in the “Salford LGBT Multi-Agency Forum” – a group of organisations in Salford who get together to ensure LGBTQ Salford residents are well supported and represented.
Lead by Salford Youth Services (www.wuu2.info) and Healthwatch Salford (www.healthwatchsalford.co.uk) with support from 42nd Street (www.42ndstreet.org.uk), the plan was to capture the stories of LGBT Salford residents and share their experiences.
You can listen to 3 of these stories on the right!
