LGBTQymru has done the digital for the next chapter of their stunning success story.
Welcome to our wonderful LGBTQymru website, the home of Wales’ first ever online bilingual queer magazine for our community, by our community.
We decided a long time ago that we were going to continue to provide an online space in which we can support, celebrate, and connect the LGBTQommunities of Wales.
Our recently announced free, quarterly queer magazine is now ready and waiting to be hosted online – with content, of course, coming soon.
The publication covers the life, stories and topics of our LGBTQommunities within Wales through four key themes: Lifestyle, Community, Health and Well-Being, plus Culture.
Just like the Wales Wide Virtual Pride, our unique online event in July that celebrated the whole of our community across the whole of our country, we will bring together all those living the LGBTQ+ life, and our allies too of course!
We will make it a priority to make the content truly representative of the stories, experiences, and reality of all LGBTQommunites within Wales – in fact, that’s why we’re doing it!
Issue One’s launch date will be coming soon, but we also have a number of ways you can get involved now.
If you want to be part of LGBTQymru’s evolution, have a passion for making a positive difference, love working with others, and are able to dedicate time to building a platform to support, celebrate, and connect the LGBTQommunites in Wales, then we’d love to hear from you.
Come be part of our team by letting us know your ideas and even provide content too if you wish.
We are especially keen to hear from people of colour, trans and non-binary folk and people with disabilities to better reflect the community we serve.

LGBTQymru are a collective of passionate, and respected activists, and allies, dedicated to keeping our Qmmunity cohesive and connected.
Formed during the Corona Virus pandemic, their first project was the inaugural Wales Wide Virtual Pride. The event celebrated the whole of our community across the whole of our country, and brought together all those living the LGBTQ+ life, in Wales.
LGBTQymru is a not for profit organisation, with all funds or sponsorship raised, given back to our community directly. Nearly £4,000 was donated to Glitter Cymru, Keshet, Valleys Pride, Rhondda Pride, Hidayah, and Unique after the July event.
The Qmmittee work with a whole range of established, and grass roots organisations, to ensure our work amplifies and truly represents the voices of all within Wales.
And take a look at our online presence here to see who we are, what we do, and how we plan on keeping you entertained, educated, and engaged.
The success of Wales Wide Virtual Pride really showed how cohesive our communities can be and LGBTQymru are delighted to keep on keeping our Qmmunity connected.
This really is a game changer.
Watch this space.
I’m super proud to be involved.
