Hello and good day to you all.
Well it is almost here, the event we have been waiting for London Pride 2017.
We will be marching (strolling slowly for some of us!) with Pride at this years event with our new T Shirts.
We have only 5 left so if you would like to come along join us and be part of the fun please contact us here with your details.
In May we held a special rememberance IDAHOT Day on the 17th at Merton Civic Centre in partnership with the Merton Council.
With over 30 people attending even the rain didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of thepeople who turned up at Morden Civic Centre to support International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia.
Opening speeches came from last years Mayor Brenda Fraser and Cllr Edith Macaulay, both supporters of the Merton LGBT+ Forum and the work we do for the whole Merton Community. A two minute silence the followed while the rainbow flag was raised.
Further speeches from myself and Natalie and a chance for people to network and talk about the events of the day and the great work we at the Forum have been doing these past two years.
As I previously mentioned the Forum Newsletter is finished it and its published, live here on the website and our FaceBook and Twitter pages.
