First LGBT+ Retirement Community

LGBT+ Retirement

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.

Community Partnerships

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.

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)
