When the New Year rolls around, it can be easy to pick resolutions that centre on restriction – less sugar, less fat, less drinking, etc. However, there is something much more fulfilling about taking up or learning something creative and new. From learning valuable skills to making like-minded friends, there are so many advantages to new hobbies. So, with that in mind, we have put together 11 LGBT+ inclusive groups to help you become a more creative person.
