The group is run from Wandsworth U3A to comply with the rules of the U3A and because the founding member (Maggie) is a member of that particular U3A. The group is a cross borough networking group so there is no need to join Wandsworth U3A if you wish to attend.
The group is primarily for U3A members who identify themselves as Lesbians, Gay men, Bisexual, Transexual, questioning and for those who don’t quite fit into the acronym (LGBTQ+). The group is, however, an open group. U3A friends and allies of the LGBTQ+ community will also be made very welcome!
The group has the full support of the National Executive Committee and the local Committee too as diversity within the U3A has long been acknowledged to be a problem.
The group meets on the last Tuesday of each month in central London. The emphasis will be networking, supporting each other and enjoying social time together. We will also be studying LGBTQ+ history so that we can better understand the impact that law, culture and attitude has had on our community over the years. We will also be doing trips to art galleries, museums and events.
