A Cardiff based community of ethnic minority LGBTQ+ people

Glitter Cymru

Glitter is about being heard and the opportunity to listen to others. We have diverse stories. We come together at our meet-ups to shine, sparkle and feel visible.

This year’s theme for LGBT+ History month was mind, body and spirit. We present to you here our moments of peace, love, joy and hope, where we are making history now. 

About us

Helping Ethnic Minority LGBTQ+ people build Community & Be Heard

Glitter Cymru was set up in June 2016 as a monthly meet-up group for people who identify under the following two acronyms: BAME meaning Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic and LGBT+ meaning Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Trans.
