This is the site for all the Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Trans stuff happening in the Shrewsbury area. Several groups meet regularly, and additional events get added from time to time. The site's ten pages also contain links to help and support, and a bit about Shrewsbury and its history.

If you have something to add please tell us.

If you’d like to help the tiny teams of exhausted people organise something don’t be shy - please speak up. They'd love it!

 Welcome !
