Welcome to the Rainbow Boroughs Project Blog,
This use to be called the LGBT Blog London, however we decided to change the name to consolidate all our LGBT work into one project. Please bear with us as we update this site.
Rainbow Boroughs Facebook Page
We have set up a Facebook Community page Rainbow Boroughs which we hope will be liked and followed by lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, trans people and our allies – providing an opportunities to share information between us.
London LGBT Organisers Group
We are inviting leading members from each of the borough LGBT Forums and other London-based LGBT groups and organisations to join our private Facebook group so we can share information behind the scenes and collaborate together.
Please contact us if you would like to join this closed group.
Rainbow Boroughs WordPress Blog
The aim of this WordPress blog is to help network the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* communities of London. Work constructing the blog started on the 1st February, at the beginning of LGBT History Month 2016.
As we develop the blog, we hope to gather a lot of useful information together which we want to share in an open and transparent way; to help signpost and raise awareness of the huge variety of events and activities taking place across London, to promote and celebrate diversity within and across our communities, to foster and improve community collaboration and cohesion, and develop better services and facilities.
This is also part of a wider project to raise hate crime awareness by the anti-hate crime charity 17-24-30 NationalHCAW.
