Rainbow Noir is a volunteer lead social, peer support and community action group, which celebrates and platforms people of colour who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Queer and/or Intersex (LGBTQI+).

We want to provide a voice for LGBTQI+ people of colour in Greater Manchester and the North West. As a community and as individuals we are too often silenced or forgotten about. We strive to influence change within and outside of the LGBTQI+ community on a local and a national level.

As well as our commitment to represent the QTIPOC community, one of our soul aims is to create a space of our own, a place to feel safe, where LGBTQI+ people of colour can meet, hang out and form friendships, whether that be online or in person.
