Penguin Pride 5th July

I trust you are well and have enjoyed the sunshine and the torrential rains we had lately, what fun! Our social yesterday was well attended and we had some new faces and old faces resurfacing. The Margaritas were indeed very good... don't forget our next event is on the 21st June for a Walk of Soho followed by drinks in an undisclosed but extremely nice location, you have to be in the walk to find out! Also please do book for the Reception at the House of Lords, I paid the deposit, ordered the food and wine, now we just need you and your guests to join in. All details on our website:

We have been invited to join the Penguin Pride on the 5th July at 18:30

GPN Members receive 20% off the ticket price and details have been sent to them by email. (not a member yet? it only costs £20 a year: go to now)

I have also been promised some VIP wristbands but will see when I receive them and they will be sent on a first asked, first served basis, including free entry, drink and a goody bag.

It looks like a fascinating evening and I include what it says on eventbrite below:

Penguin Pride returns to London for a second year with an awe-inspiring line-up of LGBTQ writers, poets, musicians and activists to celebrate the city’s incredible diversity and to shine a light on new voices in the community. Hosted at Cargo in Shoreditch by award-winning poet and playwright Toby Campion, this multi-arts festival-style event will showcase published authors alongside writers and performers on the rise in what promises to be a truly inspiring evening of queer talent. Names on the bill include award-winning poets Jay Bernard and Dizraeli, writer Matthew Todd and musician Kal Lavelle to name but a few.
In partnership with GAY TIMES.
£1 per ticket sold will go towards the great work of The Albert Kennedy Trust, a national LGBTQ youth homelessness charity.
