The Tower Hamlets LGBT Community Forum is a project that aims to bring together LGBT+ people (and allies) who live, work, study or socialise in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets to discuss and have an influence on issues which affect the local LGBT community, as well as network, socialise and meet other local LGBT people.
The Forum holds monthly meetings where members come together to issues that affect the local and national LGBT community, and meet other local LGBT people for both networking and socialising. The Forum also organises quarterly social events for members, and undertakes research into the experiences of local LGBT people so that LGBT voices are heard and represented in local policy making.
Anyone, LGBT+ people and allies who live, work, study or socialise in Tower Hamlets can join the Forum, attend monthly meetings, and join in with discussion, research, and having a say on local issues. You can be a local professional or a resident – everyone is welcome.
Joining the Forum is free and easy – email LGBTforum@elop.org to request a member form.
Forum members receive monthly Newsletters and shorter ‘Newsflashes’ updating them on the dates and locations of meetings, and local LGBT news and events, as well as updates on current opportunities to get involved with local research and policy making.
