Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities understand what it is like to be marginalised for who they are. We can therefore stand in solidarity with our LGBTQIA+ friends, colleagues, supporters and even family members, without whom our lives would never be the same. Show your support by wearing the rainbow this June.

Hard Road To Travel: "It's Kushti To Rokker" - Travellers' Times

It’s Kushti To Rokker is a campaign aimed at encouraging us all to be more open about our mental health and to start conversations with those who might need our support.

In collaboration with Traveller LGBT Pride The second film in the Its Kushti to Rokker series brought to you this week is ‘Hard Road to Travel’.

Meet Danny he is a proud young gay Travelling man, but it’s not always been that way. His big brother Joeboy has been made to drop him off in London to join the first ever Gypsy, Roma and Traveller contingent to march in the London Pride parade.

If you’ve been affected by any of the issues raised in this film take a look in our info pack for young people and families for information on advice and support 👉…

There is no shame in reaching out for help if you are feeling stressed, depressed or experiencing a crisis, but it can be hard to know who to turn to and where to go to for help and support. That’s why we’ve created this pack, to help point you and the people you care about in the right direction.
