Duckie Family Dinner

17/09/2017 @ 13:00 - 18:00

#DuckieFamily was filled with so much QTIPOC love, we are inviting you to:


a Sunday dinner rich in food, conversations and self-care

Sunday 17 September 1pm – 6pm

From curators Travis Alabanza and Kayza Rose, we present a more slowed down, relaxed, and easier Sunday afternoon: The Sunday dinner.

Responding to the lack of spaces that are carved for Black queer and trans people to talk about their health, be with each other in low-key environments, care for each other and relax – FAMILY DINNER plans to create a space where we can do just that.

With Black mental health an under spoken and served topic within mental health dialogue, and LGBTQ+ Black mental health even further misunderstood, Family Dinner aims to create an open and easy space where we can talk about our health, our survival strategies, hear from others in our community and have the much needed conversations that have been missing in mainstream narratives.

Centred around the wholesomeness of a sunday family dinner, join us on 17 September from 1pm at St Paul’s Church for a chance to eat, speak, relax, and take it easy. Join and take part in some of creative workshops, or make some handmade soaps and hair care products, bring your children or your friends, and then kick back for a free – all included – African And Caribbean Dinner – where we will gather around, like one big family, and talk, discuss and eat!

This event is free, including food, non-alcoholic drinks, and is wheelchair accessible.

This event is created and focussed upon the Black queer community. Black LGBTQ+ folk may bring their friends, yet we ask that the focus of the space is respected.

Invite your friends, invite your auntie’s, invite your lovers, and come and spend your Sunday with us!
