Thank you for coming to the Village on the 22nd October 2015

Thank you for attending GPN yesterday at The Village.  Your support is really appreciated and it was great  to see you. 
Thank you to Robbie to have come up trump as I was getting rather annoyed at the various conditions that Rustiko came with at the last minute, the last draw was actually on Monday morning... Anyway, we shall be back at The Village next month and if we are more we can modulate the room by taking off some furniture. However the maximum will be 50. 
So save the dates, 19th November at The Village, 17th December at the New Bloomsbury Set for a totally relaxed drink (no badges/no speeches), 21st January at The Duke of Wellington, from them on, it may be one or the other but we want to support our gay pubs as they otherwise disappear and will not stray away from them again if we can help it...
Steve from the GBA  announced yesterday that he will organise an LGBT  "Dragon's Den" in January or February to which we are all welcome, more to come or look at the Website... GBA, why don't you join GBA too, this is the LGBT chamber of commerce, of which I am the Chairman.
Have you looked at (because there is only one Gay Professional Network) which gives you a lot more information about our Network? is our hub where you are able to contact each others directly and view or list special offers and events. It is FREE to join and you can communicate with all our members through this media or through the Facebook Page,  Group and LinkedIn

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.

Read the statistics of  GPN
here. We are several million in the world! Probably 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.   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 endeavour  to support venues owned and managed by LGBT people) 

It was good to meet new and old friends. I trust you made some useful contacts last night.
Beatrice took some  pictures yesterday, she had to leave early to go to the theatre and you can find them here on her blog and also on the other platforms mentioned above.

The raffle for Positive East raised £66.00, thank you very much for your generosity. So far we raised £581.54 for the Charity of which I am a Trustee. Thanks to Beatrice, there were many winners yesterday.

I did not mention yesterday but I should have as Adrien and Pierre won the Attitude Award for the Young LGBT Entrepreneur of the Year! myGwork  is going from strenght to strenght as yes I am a shareholder before you ask... you can register on this platform to look at your next  move in your career or hiring someone from the LGBT Community.

Does this all intrigue you and want to know about me? Have a look here.

I very much look forward to seeing you again soon.

Happy clicking and have a great weekend!

Best wishes,


With all best wishes,

Yours truly,


Jean-François Dor
