Gay Professional Network at The Light Lounge in Soho with Gary Henshaw

Tickets by OutSavvy

We are a group of Gay Professionals who like their comfort, good wine and food, comfortable surrounding and great people.

In March, we are going to The Light Lounge, part of the Gary Henshaw empire, situated above the KU Bar. Gary will be with us on the evening and will receive us with a glass of Fizz on arrival followed by a copious amount of Canapes and wines.

As you know, GPN always supports Gay owned and operated venues and I cannot think of another one that deserves it more at the moment.
The price is £42.00 pp and includes a small fee towards the running of GPN. Please note that this reflects that we are not paying for a totally private room this time. 
GPN is a non for profit membership organisation operating since 2010. The excess from the membership fees after food, drinks and room hire pays for the website, promotion, organising, stationary including the badges, transport & banners, guests and guest speakers. 
Members who paid for the year, there is no further charges except that we now meet bimonthly and up to five times a year.
As we did over the last few years, drinks will be included, (up  to a point though!).
Please keep checking this blog as this is where special offers and other events from affiliated organisations are posted on a regular basis.
If you have not yet done so, please consider joining us at and please spread the word about the Gay Professional Network. Sharing it with friends, colleagues and the wider world helps us to grow and expand.
The Gay Professional Network is a really good way to meet like minded people for business or social reason. All very nice people in a relaxed atmosphere. I incite you to keep in touch and nurture the contacts you make as you never know when they might come useful. 
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. 
Get connected, productive & proactive with GPN, The LGBT platform to promote your causes, companies, venues & businesses.
As always, I'd like to hear your thoughts and feedback about the events and your online experience too through our Facebook Group and our LinkedIn Group.
I very much look forward to seeing you again soon.
Yours ever,


Jean-François Dor
Gay Professional Network

short film that spreads awareness of non-binary and pansexual issues

I've written a short film that spreads awareness of non-binary and pansexual issues. It is based on my own experiences.
I've developed the script with creative england's Kate O'hara. We have launched a Indie GoGo campaign and are looking for your support to get us to our target. Collaborating with lgbt platforms will give the project a platform to spread its honest, educating and entertaining message to a appropriate yet wide platform.
We only need £1500 more to make the project. If you are interested in working with us please check out the link to our page. If you yourself cannot contribute because of budget reasons we would really appreciate you to share our link so we can reach our target! It would make a massive difference.
Together I believe we can make something extremely powerful which can reach an audience around the globe educating them on gender and LGBT issues.

It’s time to push boundaries and create more discussion!

Thanks for reading,
Abel rubinstein

Invitation to learn about the LGBT-Token

Dear Members, 

Our colleagues at the are inviting us to join them on the 15th February for drinks and a presentation on a LGBT-Token.

As a financial introducer, I cannot recommend crytocurrency as this is very high volatility and there are no security but as Pierre says: free drinks and a nice place to meet up...

Best wishes,

Subject: Fw: Invitation to learn about the LGBT-Token

I would like to invite you to a special roadshow event to learn more about the LGBT Token, a blockchain technology with the aim of advancing equal rights and promoting the acceptance of the LGBT+ community.

The LGBT Token was launched in January after months of research with LGBT+ entrepreneurs and charities to find the right angle for how a blockchain technology can be used as an innovative force for change.
 The event is next Thursday the 15th of February and will be hosted by Christof Wittig, the Founder and CEO of Hornet Networks. I’ve included some links at the bottom of the email if you wish to find out more about the LGBT Token.
 I would love to see you there.

A monthly digest for the LGBT sector
View this email in your browser
A warm welcome to the February edition of our Newsletter!
Read on for news from the Sector, our Members and the Consortium Team.

Sector News 

Last Call for LGBT Groups

Over the last 6 weeks we have been exploring LGBT Groups relationships with LGBT rights and the law through a survey and a series of round table deiscussions. The survey will be closing on Monday 5th Feburary so if you havent taken part on your groups behalf, now is the time to do it.

All LGBT groups, no matter how big or small or whether they have staff or volunteers, are invited to take part in the 
survey which will help us to paint a picture of how LGBT groups engage (or don't engage) with the law and LGBT rights in their work - however informal it may be. 

LGBT History Month 2018 

LGBT History Month this year will be commemorating two sombre events; the 30th anniversary of the passing of Section 28, which prohibited local authorities from disseminating materials that ‘promoted homosexuality’ in schools; and the fortieth anniversary of the murder by shooting of Harvey Milk, the USA’s first out-gay elected councillor. 
The History Month 2018 theme is ‘Geography: Mapping the World’.
Visit to find resrouces and events.

Put yourself on the Map! 

LGBT History Month 2018 will focus on ‘Geography: Mapping the World’ which we thought fitted rather nicely with the mapping work we are carrying out in London.

This mapping project, Always Out There is funded by City Bridge Trust and is being delivered in partnership with HERO/GMFA. We aim to collate and create an interactive map of groups, support and services for LGBT people in London.

We are keen to make sure this work doesn’t just happen in London, so we are asking LGBT groups everywhere to put themselves on the map! So if your LGBT isnt already a Member of LGBT Consortium - join up here and be counted! 

Changes to the teaching of Sex & Relationship Education and PSHE - consultation closes 13th February 

The Department for Education is considering how to update the existing Sex and Relationship guidance which, was last updated in 2000, and is therefore now out of date.

The updated guidance will support schools in delivering the new subjects of Relationships Education at primary and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) at secondary.

There is a survey which asks for your views on a number of topics that will be considered in the update and we would encourage as many LGBT groups to give their views as possible.

Consortium Team News

Paul - Chief Executive Officer

Welcome to February and welcome to LGBT History Month. At a time when the diversity of our communities appears under attack, we are looking forward to using this month to highlight the magnificent work every Bisexual, Trans, LGBT BAME, Faith, Disability and beyond Member organisation undertakes on a daily basis.

Without your hard work and dedication we would be in a far darker place so here’s to celebrating how we are a collectively powerful force, not just in February but throughout every day of the year. Thank you to all our Members for the dedication to supporting LGBT communities.

Sophie - National LGBT Anti-Bullying Project Coordinator

We are excited to be hosting a visit from this projects funder, The Government Equality Office, who will be coming along to see one of our delivery partners in action this month.

Our partners are getting great feedback from the work they are deliving to teachers and school staff around preventing and tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying;

''A warm yet professional tone was immediately established by the course leader which allowed insightful discussion to take place across both training sessions. I feel that me and my staff were fortunate to have taken part.''

''The facilitator was excellent. Not too rigidly set to their own agenda and able to facilitate an open discussion around difficult issues that would have been difficult to manage without them.''
