The Gay Professional Network is your platform to promote your cause, your business, venue and yourself. It  helps your further your business or career and makes meaningful business and social contacts. You get connected, proactive and productive.

It is also a get together of like minded people who enjoy meeting other people. All very nice people in a relaxed atmosphere.

You may want to read a few facts, such as how far reaching we are,  about GPN, your Network, here. We are now several million in the world! Possibly the biggest network anywhere.

To be a fully fledged member of  GPN cost  £1 a day, £ 5 a week, £20 a month or £200 a year payable on a recurring basis which gives you FREE registration to all the networking events, including those in the City, Walthamstow and more to come.  If you are ready for this, proceed here.   This link gives you the LinkedIn and Facebook addresses. We connect you with people anywhere in the World.

There are many advantages to be a member such as free legal, financial, property or events consultation and free entries to many clubs, discount and other perks. (Registration/membership does not necessarily include drinks and canapes, we rely on the venues to sponsor this in exchange of considerable publicity to our Network worth several thousand of pounds, we try to support venues owned and managed by LGBT people)
