A new safe space for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people to socialise could be created in the borough after people from all walks of life brainstormed ways to tackle intolerance.
Then they all sang 'Kumbayah' and held hands....
Participants looked at questions compiled at the first event and how the police – represented by Barking and Dagenham Acting Sgt Rob Bills – and the council had answered them.
Accusations of “rigid” and “robotic” wording in the authorities’ responses moved to a proactive brainstorming in how LGBTQI communities can work with authorities to move forward.
Broadway Theatre emerged as a “safe social space to go for a laugh, for a date, to watch a film”, summarised CVS chief excutive Erica Jenkins, who has promised to help make a regular meeting happen.
Doesn't meeting at a regular time and place make it easier for the sort of people who'd start trouble to find you?
FlipSide member Petra Brockman, 17, identifies as bigendered. Along with other teenagers from the group, they are looking for ways to transform sex education in schools.
“For me the teaching is currently more static than gender fluidity is,” explained the Barking and Dagenham College student, who aims to produce a new sex education syllabus with other FlipSide members.
"Doesn't meeting at a regular time and place make it easier for the sort of people who'd start trouble to find you?"
Exactly. I believe the more of a song and dance these people make about their perceived predicament the more it attracts the wrong sort of attention.
Entitlement now trumps effort. People have found out that they can force others to give something in exchange for nothing if they make enough noise about something. Others will give them what they want either to just shut them up or because they have been duped or because they have been shamed into doing so even when they have nothing to be ashamed about. It is plain and simple extortion and like all extortionists they will keep coming back for more and encourage others to do the same.
With the way things are changing these people will hardly get time to get started before the feedback is in and this whole set up cancelled.
I notice how Plod still have time for all this stuff.

Relax, folks, the insufferable unemployable attention-seeker conveyor belt is working just fine.

What's an ender, and apart from size, how do the big ones differ from the small ones?
#GenerationSnowflake continues apace I see.
I read that as "big-ended" Does her bum look big in this (whatever she/he/it's wearing)?
When will this sillyness stop? There are only two GENDERS, fixed in every cell's DNA, no matter which body bits are surgically altered. Everything else is either foetal brain anomalies or "lifestyle choices", but definitely not genders.
Can't these chumps (i.e., those with a greater than deserved sense of entitlement) pick another word to distort & redefine?
"Petra Brockman, 17, identifies as bigendered."
Is that 'bi-gendered' or 'endowed with a big end'?
Dear God why do we give these cretins time?
Maybe Barking and Dagenham Council could do their bit to make LGB people (I am refusing to add the 'T' to it as it plainly doesn't belong in a list of sexualities) by not being so enthusiastic about encouraging those who follow the religion of camel-piss, violence and chucking gays off of tall buildings, to do their stuff in the borough.
Just a thought for those police officers who find themselves in the position of being the diversity bod, which is nice non-police work if you an get it.
You'd think that with the level of criminals around both imported and domestic in B and D that the police would have too much to do to spend time polishing their diversity halos?
Judging by the birthrate there should be a large group of neuters in there.
Demography is destiny.
LGBTQI? I know what the LGB means, and the T means former cage fighters and oil-rig workers who think they're women deep down, but what's the Q and the I for?
Quackery and Ignorant, I think....

"I notice how Plod still have time for all this stuff."
Ain't it strange..? :/
"Relax, folks, the insufferable unemployable attention-seeker conveyor belt is working just fine."
We can just hook it up to the line for embarking the 'B' Ark...
"Is that 'bi-gendered' or 'endowed with a big end'?"
Well spotted, all!
"..nice non-police work if you can get it...."
Far, far too many can, it seems.
"...but what's the Q and the I for?"
Google says 'Questioning' (nope, me neither) and 'Intersex' (which we'd have called 'hermaphrodite' once upon a time.
