Southwark LGBT Network

Southwark Lesbian Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Network (Southwark LGBT Network) was founded in 2002 to extend outreach activities with the Southwark LGBT Forum ((formerly the Southwark Anti- Homophobic Forum, founded 1995). Its purpose is to build and strengthen LGBT communities in Southwark so as to improve the quality of life of LGBT people who live, work, study or socialise in Southwark and reduce our vulnerability to hate crime, harassment and discrimination.
