'An evening with amazing people’ being held for 2nd year

For the second year running, the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) is inviting the public to join them for “An Evening with Amazing People” from 6.30pm to 8.30pm on Thursday 22nd May in the Hospital’s Benjamin Gooch Lecture Theatre.

The event is being supported by 1st Energy and has been organised by the LGBT Staff Forum at NNUH to celebrate IDAHO Day – International Day Against Homophobia.  An Evening with Amazing People celebrates diversity and builds on the work undertaken by the hospital in making services welcoming for LGBT patients.

The speakers are Manchester vicar Rachel Mann and local radio producer Di Cunningham.

Rachel Mann is a vicar, Manchester Cathedral’s resident poet and a popular writer and speaker on subjects as diverse as sexuality and rock music.  A trans woman, her memoir about growing up transgendered, Dazzling Darkness, was a Church Times bestseller and her new collection of poems and stories, The Risen Dust, has just been published. She has played in metal and rock bands most of her adult life and has written extensively for the music press.

Di Cunningham is the producer of the Breakfast and Pride Live Shows on Future Radio 107.8FM.  Music offers her a medium to help people tell their stories through her “My Pride Life” weekly feature.  She is also working with Norwich City Supporters Trust to get “the Canaries Singing in Unison across Europe”.

Tickets cost £3.00 on the door.  For more information call the Communications Team at NNUH on 01603 287634 or email lgbt@nnuh.nhs.uk
