LGBT+ organisations and helplines

LGBT Forums, groups and networks

Many towns, cities and authorities have some kind of group supporting LGBT people. Few are staffed, and volunteers are their lifeblood, working tirelessly to raise LGBT issues and create a positive presence locally. If you can't find a local presence, Meet Up may surprise you.

In Greater London, for instance, boroughs are supposed to have an LGBT Forum, a recommendation in the Lawrence Inquiry. The original idea of a Forum was to act as a community liaison with the police to ensure adequate service provision and a breakdown of barriers to the reporting of hate crime.

Queering Camden
Queering Camden is a living, community-made mapping project of queerness in all its forms across Camden. "This project welcomes submissions from all people who identify as LGBTQ+ who have lived, worked, or simply travelled through Camden. The stories may occur in the past, the present, or the future. We invite responses in text, audio, image, and video forms. These submissions will be shared on the website, on social media, and later as part of a larger digital exhibition."
