Accept LGBTI Cyprus and Queer Cyprus Association, on the occasion of their official collaboration are organising a “United by Colours” festival, which will take place on October 5 at Home for Cooperation in Nicosia.

The festival aims to bring people from both communities together and also to provide information about the future joint actions of the organisations.

Featured sessions:
~ Information from representatives of the two organisations, regarding the status of LGBTI+ issues, existing needs and their collaboration along with future joint actions.
~ “OPEN MIC”, in which every person will have the opportunity to talk/ discuss on every matter they wish.
~ Music and dance from bands, performers, and DJs from both communities.

“We’ll be more than happy to see all of you coming, as this collaboration is really important not only for the LGBTI+ community but also for the Cypriot community in general,” the organisers said.
