First meeting: Tuesday 14th July 2020 at 7.30pm – 8.30pm

Full Spectrum is a new national network for disabled people who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Intersex, Asexual, Non-Binary, or simply non-heterosexual in orientation / gender identity.

We are launching a regular virtual community drop-in space by and for disabled LGBTI+ people. This will be a safe and welcoming peer-support space where we can come together to get to know each other, share experiences, support one another and build a community identity.

If you identify as disabled, and identify as LGBTI+ (or any other letter of the alphabet!), then you are welcome to join our space of equals. There are currently three people acting as a steering group; Maureen, Niall and Isolde. At least one of us will be present at each session to facilitate discussions and deal with the inevitable technical hitches.
We are delighted to be supported by ILMI (Independent Living Movement Ireland), who can offer technology training for anyone unfamiliar with using the Zoom platform. You do not need to be a member of ILMI to take part.

For further information, and to register your interest in taking part:
