Queer Speed Dating: LGSM Fundraiser

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and love is in the air! Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants (LGSMigrants) are here to satisfy your needs for queer connection and community this courting season. With the one and only Lori Mae playing cupid, and a range of ‘perfect date’ raffle prizes up for grabs, what better way to wind up your winter than at our Queer Speed Dating Fundraiser!

All proceeds from ticket sales and the raffle will be going to support the LGSMigrants Winter Fundraiser. This year’s fundraiser is based on the principle that climate justice is migrant justice. We are acting in solidarity with flood-affected communities in Nigeria and Pakistan by supporting the Queer Nigerian Emergency Fund (by the Oasis Project) and the Solidarity Appeal for Flood Victims in Pakistan (by the Women Democratic Front).

Find out more or donate directly to the Winter Fundraiser on our Gofundme page.

Queer Speed Dating is open to queer people of all genders and orientations. We will not be arranging pairings on the basis of dating preference. Instead, everyone will get a chance to chat with everyone else in attendance. While we hope that those looking for love will be able to meet their perfect romantic match, we will also be facilitating ‘friendship matches’ in the spirit of building community.

Each speed date will last for 3 minutes. Throughout the events, participants will be asked to make note of whether each date could provide them with a romantic or friend match. This information will be gathered by LGSMigrants members at the end of the event. If two people list each other in the same category (romantic or friend), it’s a match! We will be in touch in the days following the event to let you know who you matched with and to pass on their contact details.

LGSMigrants aims to provide a space where everyone feels safe and supported. Dating and meeting new people can make everyone feel vulnerable at times. Our welfare team will be present on the night to look out for you and offer help where needed. Breaks will be scheduled frequently throughout the evening. Behaviour that is racist, misogynistic, ableist, fetishistic, transphobic or bigoted in any way will not be tolerated. Speed dating is all about making matches based on mutual interest. Consent is key! Behaviour that is sexually inappropriate or overly forward will not be accepted.
