An arts project aimed at supporting the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community launches tonight.

The year-long Be & Do project led by Barking based Studio 3 Arts will use creativity as a way of getting people talking, telling stories and bringing people together to challenge stereotypes and myths around sexuality.
