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 organise something don’t be shy -  they'd love it!

  • It's February and time to take advantage of the many and diverse offerings for LGBT History this year. The library even has a display of LGBT reads to celebrate (pictured)! 
  • History Month kicks off in Shrewsbury with two exhibitions in The Hive and at the Museum & Art Gallery. Singular events include a mock trial, creative map making using ceramics, the BAFTA nominated film I Am Not Your Negro and documentary Tom of Finland, plus several fascinating talks on various themes. In Oswestry there's a 1940s tea dance to celebrate love in all its forms (how beautiful is that?), another chance to see the wonderful Call Me By Your Name, and a talk. Church Stretton has a night of poetry led by a poet in residence (where you can read yours if you wish). In Wellington there's a talk about Shrewsbury's bloody assizes when lots of gay men were locked up within living memory. Have a look at our What's On page so you don't miss out.
