FLEXED

A creative arts programme for young LGBTQ+ people

What is Flexed?

Flexed is a new youth arts programme based in St Leonards providing space for LGBTQ+ young people to come together, socialise and connect through a variety of events and activities.

Our goal is to make our town an exciting and lively place for young people that identify as LGBTQ+.

Events

We will be programming unique events for young LGBTQ+ folk and their friends which bring together creativity, music, performance, film and much more.

From drag performances to immersive film nights these events will not only be enjoyable social gatherings but will also provide a queer community for young people in which difference is celebrated and embraced.

Activities

A series of creative activities and collaborative workshops are being developed to encourage young LGBTQ+ people to connect with each other and learn new skills.

These activities will be led by industry professionals and will range from film-making to music creation.

Want to get involved?

An integral part of our ethos is to make sure that young LGBTQ+ people feel included in our community.

If you would like to be involved in making this happen, either by attending or offering support and ideas for creative activities or events, please email info@goodstuffinstlens.com.

Flexed is a community project led by local LGBTQ+ residents who have formed a voluntary run Working Group to help shape the vision of the project. The working group meets virtually every 2-3 weeks, please contact us via email info@goodstuffinstlens.com if you are interested in joining our Working Group or alternatively call 020 3920 9045 and leave a voice message with your name and telephone number and we will get back to you when we can.
