New ‘Come Out’ group to launch in October

17:15 22 August 2013

The Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Transgender (LGBT) group is being supported by Devon and Cornwall Police.

A NEW Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Transgender (LGBT) group will be officially launching across North Devon and Torridge in October.

Devon and Cornwall Police said it is fully supporting the Come Out group, which will launch on October 19.

The group aims to provide a safe and friendly environment to people who may feel socially isolated.

The first pre-launch drop-in will be held at the Sunrise Community Centre in Castle Street, Barnstaple on September 21, from 11am until 3pm.

Julie Dixon, the North and West Devon police diversity officer, said: “This new initiative is aimed at those who would benefit from LGBT support or simply would who have an interest in meeting with others.

“The group has formed as a result of requests from LGBT people who feel that such support is required in this area.”
