Out2gether is a South-Worcestershire based group for the LGBT+ community, their friends and allies.
Established early in 2017 with the aim to improve the wellbeing of the local LGBT+ community, the group has enjoyed regular non-scene social events including our famous travelling ‘Tea Shop Tour’, theatre trips and art projects. We were delighted to be able to support Worcestershire Pride at their fundraisers and had a fantastic time at our stall meeting lots of lovely people on the day - the highlight of our first year!
We now have a regular Saturday Brunch Social on the last Saturday of the month at Cafe Bliss in Worcester.
In addition to having fun, Out2gether also provides representation on the local NHS Trust Diversity Advisory Group and Police LGBT Hate Crime Forum.
Out2gether is still a very new group and welcomes new members. We’re also open to suggestions for future activities and venues for our Tea Shop Tour to visit.

We are a group of parents in South Birmingham and Worcestershire whose children have 'come out' to us as gay, lesbian, bisexual and/or transgender (LGBT).
New Road Parents' Support Group serves two roles.
Firstly we provide a listening ear for parents and other family members of LGBT people. We are all people in similar circumstances and may have been through similar emotions. We listen and talk together in complete confidence about how we feel, and we learn from one another how to be accepting. Our society still makes things difficult in many ways and we explore common misunderstandings and fears; cultural and religious factors; ignorance and prejudice. Our LGBT sons and daughters need love, support and understanding, as indeed they always have. We offer guidelines and encouragement in forging a new honest relationship with a son or daughter who has come out.
Other parents find they have no difficulty with accepting that their child is LGB or T. For these parents the group provides a forum for discussion on ways to move society forward from its prejudices and make the world a safer place for lesbians, transgender people, bisexuals and gays. Parents in the past have been activists and have taken part in Gay Pride processions in the city, have spoken to church groups (such as the Mothers' Union and Changing Attitude) and written letters to newspapers, magazines and journals. Their stories have been published in the press and magazines and they have lobbied Bishops and MPs. Some have been on radio and TV programmes.
New Road Parents Support is based in Bromsgrove, North Worcestershire, and is aptly named as parents travel down a new road in life when their children come out. We are a voluntary group and meet in a safe confidential meeting place.
We meet bi-monthly (alternating monthly with Birmingham Parents Support group) on a Tuesday evening at 7.15pm.
Phone Margaret for more information (01527 832492) or send an email.
Free for all young people aged 12-16 years of age.
