We have a place! We have a time! We have a plan!
(Unfortunately, I will be an hour late to the first social get-together of the LGBT+ society, because I'm focusing lights on a theatre show, but apart from that...)
I found a perfect place; it's open til ten, it is primarily a cafe so lots of coffee, but also hot meals and alcohol should people want that. Plus it's really near the drama school, so we know everyone can get to the area.
We've just been told we can have a society email account on the school network - win! I've spent my breaks today with my fellow founder making up posters to advertise the event, and my lovely mate who's very visually creative and good with technology is whipping us up something to show on the screens in the foyer on the loop of school announcements.
I've also contacted NUS LGBT Campaign http://www.nus.org.uk/en/campaigns/lgbt/ to see if we can get their support.
It's crazy and I'm so excited about it all. I really hope we can make an impact on people's lives and really do something with this entity we're creating. I've got so many ideas, like fancy dress parties, club nights, pub quizzes, talks, events, just stuff stuff stuff!
Anyone got any other tips on what to do, or where to get resources?
