  • We had a fantastic Pink Picnic last month - the best one ever - so thank you for supporting it! The rainbow parachute/mushroom was a hoot and the event was a welcome break from the isolation that many of us experienced during the Covid lockdown and since. We'd love to post a photo but our website host godaddy is having 'issues' and we haven't been able to upload new photos as yet. 
  • A new initiative from SAND, Shrewsbury's campaign for older LGBT+ people. Called 'Embrace' it's asking people to embrace cultural and social inclusion. You can upload a photo of yourself and sign their pledge here
  • We are unsure how the new 6 max people Covid restriction will affect pubs. Havana/C21 have been open on Monday evenings but with no live show ie no DJ and no cabaret act. Zone magazine has been discontinued. The good news is that each Monday evening the Grove pub on Belle Vue Road is holding a LGBT night instead. Called Pink Mondays it'runs from 7pm to 11pm.  (Best check whether they are open though in these uncertain times.)
  • Chill Out Mondays meets on line (Zoom video call) on the first Monday each month. So join us at 8.30pm for an hour of social chat! (Email chilloutmondays@live.co.uk to receive an invitation link.) , and the LGBT book readers group Ex Libris meets twice each month on line on Thursday mornings at 11am.
  • SOFFA Marmalade, the support group for anyone with a family member who is transitioning or who is considering doing so, will be holding their monthly meetings on Zoom. For info about the next virtual monthly support meeting please email soffamarmalade@hotmail.com
  • Have you seen the Pride Train? Avanti West Coast train have painted one of their trains in pride colours and staff it entirely with staff who identify as LGBT+. You can read about it here.
