To celebrate LGBT+ history month, Hope Not Hate and Visible Merthyr are organising a unique historical moment in Merthyr’s history – the Welsh town’s first LGBT+ club night.

The team are still putting a call out to performers, such as DJs (soul, disco and funk), musicians, artists, drag performers, film makers (there is space to project films onto the walls), poets and writers to come and perform. We want to celebrate all that the Welsh LGBT+ community has to offer, so if you are free then please come on down!

The team behind the event want to make this event as assessible as possible, so won’t be charging entry to the event – money should be no barrier to you having a good time! Similarly, they will be providing a bus to Merthyr stopping at the following places: Pontypridd, Porth, Ferndale, Aberdare, Merthyr Tydfil. If you would like to travel by bus then please contact: kj@smt.org.uk or harriet@hopenothate.org.uk

Lets make history together!
