On Sunday 12th February 2017, GWN Multicultural held its annual Chinese New Year celebration at Phoenix Palace Chinese Restaurant, where great food and even better company made for an enjoyable afternoon for all. We had full attendance and a diverse mix of old and new faces. It was a great opportunity to meet others in an informal environment, share stories and appreciate the delicious dim sum on offer.
There are Persian, French, Dutch, German, British and Chinese at our table. Most have lived in other countries. We talked about the experience of Chinese food and China Town here. And everybody shared how it is like to be a lesbian in their culture. Tai
I met a Chinese friend of the same cultural background at my table. We had a few drinks later and shared our thoughts and experience of being a minority lesbian here. Joy
Thank you for organising such a lovely lunch. Really well organised and thought through. Gail
A big thank you goes to BNP Paribas for their support and for kindly providing goodie bags for attendees to enjoy. The event was a fantastic start to the year for GWNM and we look forward to hosting more great events over the coming year!
