The More in Common Network is a collection of groups across the UK working to promote Jo Cox's powerful more in common message in their communities.
The latest news from NationalHCAW
Tonic is to become the UK’s first LGBT+ retirement community having been given approval to open in 2021 after securing a £5.7m loan from the Mayor of London.
This support from the GLA Community Housing Fund will enable Tonic to purchase nineteen properties at Bankhouse, a One Housing purpose-built extra care scheme in Lambeth.
Tonic Housing will become the UK’s first provider of LGBT+ affirmative housing, with sales for one and two-bedroom shared ownership homes due to begin later in the Spring of 2021.
This is a major milestone for LGBT+ housing as there is no LGBT+ affirming provision with care currently in operation in the UK, despite there being a clearly defined need and demand from within the LGBT+ community.
Rainbow Crossings have been popping up all over London's roads over the last two years as a way to celebrate LGBT+ residents, workers, and visitors.
With Pride Month and the lost Pride season of 2020 long over, the London LGBT Forums Network have been researching which London Boroughs and Authorities have installed the crossings and where.
Freelands Foundation announces the award of £1.27m in grants to three organisations promoting racial inclusion through art education: Iniva, in London; Nottingham-based New Art Exchange; and Create London.

The businesses the bars and eateries serve however, have been very much engaged in their own day-to-day struggle for survival. Read More
Chris and Michael have created a talk looking at the work of Outings in Art and exploring the importance of remaining curious.
If you know of anyone or any group who would be interested this talk, please please email email@example.com
Look out for tips and information about LGBT+ events on our Facebook page.
Outings in Art has formed a link with British Land’s Regent’s Place development. As part of Regent’s Place's commitment to diversity and inclusion, they actively support Regent’s Pride LGBTQ+ staff network [RPN].
We will be developing joint events with the RPN as soon as the current health situation is over.
Our expanded community partnerships now also include the Camden People’s Theatre and we are currently working on a joint workshop theatre piece with them and MOSAIC LGBT Youth Centre.
We continue to offer advice and support to our friends at the wonderful Arts Project and their major annual LGBTQ+ art exhibition ‘Loudest Whispers’, which this year is at its traditional home of St Pancras Conference Centre plus a new satellite venue courtesy of Old Diorama Arts Centre.
Throughout history, the experiences of LGBTQ+ people have been erased, overlooked or marginalised. Queer Britain want future generations to see themselves. History does not live in dusty archives, it is alive in us all in the here and now.
Share your memory, and say how you are feeling. Share your hopes and dreams or even a piece of advice. Every story is important. Queer Britain want to read yours, so get writing! (Postage is free)
