Southwark LGBT Network aims to build and strengthen LGBTQ+ communities in the borough to improve the quality of life of those who live, work, study or socialise here and reduce vulnerability to hate crime, harassment and discrimination.
This weekend the Southwark LGBTQ Youth Summit will bring young LGBTQ people (aged 13-25) together to learn about local opportunities and services, socialise and have fun. There will be workshops, trans space, stalls, silent disco, photo booth and much more. Please see the flyer attached for details.
Saturday 23rd Feb, 2-6pm at the Salmon Youth Centre in Bermondsey, 43 Old Jamaica Rd, London SE16 4TE. Any questions email email@example.com
This LGBT History Month there is lots going on in Southwark. The Chateau, our beautiful new queer venue in Camberwell is growing from strength to strength, and a number of events are taking place across the borough throughout February. Jay Jay Revlon is curating a programme of activities at the Prince of Peckham, including a queer exercise/yoga session on 27th, and Philippa Punchard is organising the brilliant Southwark Queer Arts Week for the second year running, which launches on 22nd at Arts Academy Walworth Road. Southwark Events also have a number of activities taking place including a reading by Darryl Telles on 27th Feb, and on 24th Southwark Playhouse are putting on a new LGBTQ+ Writing Night.
The network will be holding a members meeting soon in early March which will be communicated to members by email. If you need to be added to the mailing list please use the form on the Newsletter page. There will also be a newsletter sent out during February so if you have any updates to share please send them through.
