The LGBT friendly cafe/restaurant will provide a safe haven to young people struggling with their sexual identity and how to be themselves!
We have chosen the location of Cambridge as there are some suitable businesses for sale and it is a hugely popular destination with tourists and local families. Brighton has been the Mecca for all LGBT members but it would be nice to be able to have something similar to that mindset in another part of the U.K.
As a firm believer in people are people and their life is their choice I would welcome any kind of support available to those during times of need. Mental health difficulties are recorded as occurring in higher proportion within this community than any other. Having the right information for family and supporters to aid the transitions and exploration of self by their loved one is paramount.
I have been a student social worker and an LGBT rights campaigner within my university. Many of the students have been targets of hatred, abuse, violence or even sexual violence just for being themselves.
The intention of this business will be to have a space where the achievements of LGBT individuals are celebrated (local art, handmade goods, businesses and educational establishments to showcase their support and talents).
Having PRIDE days for people to celebrate and also networks and support group meets advertised. A real local cafe/restaurant with the aim to promote inclusion and safety for all those who wish to use our premises.
