Hi all, I hope you are enjoying the sun! I’m writing to you with an update from the Macmillan LGBT and Cancer Programme for Greater Manchester. Project activity:

‘The Word on Cancer’ is a new and inclusive book group which will focus on words about cancer from a diverse range of voices. Come together with others at Manchester City Library to reflect on writing which explores the impact of living with cancer on people’s lives.* We will meet every other month at Manchester City Library. Please contact Lawrie to book a place on the first session on 31st May at 6pm *Please note this is a general group rather than LGBT-specific, and is open to all.

Greater Manchester Bowel Movement and the Macmillan LGBT and Cancer Programme for Greater Manchester invite you for a light lunch and discussion about bowel screening for trans and non-binary communities on June 19th. Participants will receive a £10 high street voucher. Book your place here.

Elsewhere: The LGBT Patients’ Experiences of Primary Care Annual Survey 2017/18 is now live here. Filling in this survey will help LGBT Foundation to gain a better understanding of LGBT people's experiences of Primary Care.

Tomorrow LGBT Foundation are launching their “Enough” campaign to coincide with International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. See here for how to get involved with a range of events and their Thunderclap. A new LGBT and Dementia Network launched yesterday at LGBT Foundation, follow their activity on Twitter here.

As always, please do contact me if you have any questions about the programme. Lawrie Roberts – Macmillan LGBT and Cancer Programme Coordinator
