Lewisham LGBT+ Forum

The date for the next Lewisham LGBT Forum is Friday 26th August 2016 from 6pm until 8pm at the Civic Suite in Catford, SE6 4RU

The meeting will discuss ideas for the official launch of the Lewisham LGBT Forum in October and events for National Hate Crime Awareness Week.

The Lewisham LGBT Forum is a way for local organisations and the lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender and queer community in Lewisham to link in with each other, network, cross refer and find out about events/services and what is on offer for the LGBTQ community. We also aim to help each other organise events and publicity around important dates in the LGBTQ calendar, such as LGBT History Month, Transgender Day Of Remembrance, Pride events and National Hate Crime Awareness Week etc. The forum is open to the community and organisations and members of the public are welcome to attend as participate.

Green Man drop-in

It’s the Green Man drop-in for all LGBTQ+ people in Lewisham (or surrounding!) who would like to come along. This month: tabletop ping pong! Get in the Olympic spirit by showing us your paddle skills (no spanking!). 

All welcome. This is also a Opening Doors London meeting so people of all ages welcome! Coffee and tea available.

We meet on the second Wednesday of every month. Next meeting: Wednesday 10th August 2016 from 6pm until 8pm at The Green Man Community Hub (knock on the window if the security don’t see you!), 355 Bromley Road, London SE6 2RP

There is a bus stop right outside the Green Man if you are travelling from Lewisham/Catford direction. The 208, 136, 321 all serve. The nearest train station is Beckenham Hill (but it’s about a 10-15 min walk).

Lewisham LGBT Forum

Today we had a preliminary meeting for the creation of the new Lewisham LGBT Forum. The next public meeting will be on Tuesday 26th July 2016 from 6pm to 8pm at Catford Civic Suite. We would like all members of the community who are interested in future events, issues they need to feed back to organisations, ideas on campaigning, discussions that they feel need to be raised etc to come along. 

The aims of the Lewisham LGBT Forum is to be able to come together to plan activities around LGBT issues, provide a forum for residents to talk directly with statutory services and for collaboration on joint LGBT initiatives. The forum aims to bring people together who are interested in local LGBT issues so things can be planned in advance, so people can network, raise the profile of LGBT issues in Lewisham, have a coordinated voice on local equalities policy, training, work with statutory organisations etc and to promote LGBT inclusion and community building.
