Rainbow coffee club

The coffee club will meet at the Romsey Community Co-Op.

The country LGBTIQ+ inclusion program’s monthly rainbow coffee club is coming to Romsey.

In partnership with Romsey Neighbourhood House, the social group run by Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health has been held in Kyneton for the last two years, and will be doing a second gathering a month.

The aim is to connect local LGBTIQ+ adults in the east of the shire with each other over good coffee and conversation.

Group organiser Belinda Brain said social catch ups help connect members of the community and create a sense of belonging.

“Being part of a community and feeling socially connected can really have a positive impact on a person’s mental and physical health,” Ms Brain said.

“These coffee catch-ups are a great way to meet new people and create meaningful social connections and a sense of belonging to the community.”

The Rainbow Coffee Club is one of the initiatives of the Country LGBTIQ+ Inclusion Program (CLIP), which supports the health and wellbeing of adult lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer people in the Macedon Ranges.

The coffee club will meet at the Romsey Community Co-Op on the second Friday of the month from 11am-12pm, with the first to take place on Friday, December 8.

The Romsey Community Co-Op is located at 126 Main St, Romsey.
