The crowdfunding campaign was announced on 18 April at The Hackney Showroom in East London with the aim to create a much needed visible and open, multi-functional permanent space for the LGBTQ+ community.
To date, the crowdfunding campaign has raised almost £8,000, fifteen percent of its £50,000 target needed to make the LGBTQ+ community-led space a certainty.
Without the support of the £50,000 crowdfunding pledge, London and its LGBTQ+ community risk losing the funds and opportunity for a space that will serve as social centre signposting essential services to the community at large.
“What’s obvious is that so many people see the potential of an LGBTQ+ community centre in London, a place for mutual support, intergenerational contact, service provision, celebrations, education and improving physical and mental health," said Sarah Moore, a member of the project.
All funds from ticketing and donations on the night will go towards the crowdfunding campaign. Click here to buy a ticket priced at £7. Limited tickets can be purchased on the door for £10.
