No, not daddy in that sense. In the proper sense.

TwoDads.U.K are excited to be announcing our popular UK Surrogacy information events for 2020.  Designed exclusively for Intended Fathers with some of the best fertility experts in the UK.

The event will take place at the iconic Malmaison Hotel in the heart of Manchester in the Piccadilly district, and will involve guest speakers within the UK Surrogacy arena, all sharing their expert knowledge and best practice when it comes to Surrogacy in the UK. Our event is proudly sponsored by Care Fertility Manchester, the Surrogacy experts at Manchester’s leading Fertility Clinic.

All previous TwoDads.U.K events have totally sold out, so this time we are making available extra tickets due to popular demand.

Michael and Wes are Gay Dads and are pioneers within Same Sex parenting and UK Surrogacy advocates, their active social media presence and TV and online media collaborations are helping normalise modern UK families and there are no stranger to campaigning for equal treatment for Intended Parents through Surrogacy. They have two children via UK Surrogacy, Talulah born in Oct 2016 and their son Duke in August 2019. They want to share their experiences, to enable and empower you to achieve your goals of parenthood.

This event is for you if you’re wanting to start a family of your own, but either unsure where to even start in the UK or have explored the US (and other International options) and been put off by the costs. UK Altruistic Surrogacy is perfectly legal, and easily accessible and we want to help you navigate your way around what some consider to be complex (not us).

Lets share Michael and Wes’ real experience of what it’s like being Fathers through UK Surrogacy and see what our panel of experts all have to offer. There will also be an opportunity for you to network and ask offline questions too.

Light lunch is provided in the cost of the ticket.

No one turned away for lack of funds. Please opt for a “well-waged” ticket if you can to help subsidise and maintain fair access to arts programming.

Since 2016 we’ve been schlepping around London with a smorgasbord of drag, comedy, live klezmer, poetry and politics. Hosted by music hall grand dame Chanukah Lewinsky (think Julie Walters on speed), the night began as an open mic at Housmans Bookshop for LGBTI+ Jews to celebrate these two identities which can so often feel at odds. Judaism has a long-standing tradition of camp and queerness and Homos and Houmous is always a raucous family affair; where Bette Midler’s musical stand-up in the bathhouses of New York meets arguments over Shabbat dinner.

Drag Race alumni coming to town.

Drag queen Blu Hydrangea found devoted fans on the debut season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK with her incredible makeup skills and hilarious putdowns. As well as collaborating with photographers, designers and brands, Blu is now using her platform to become a high-profile advocate for the often overlooked LGBTQIA+ community in Northern Ireland, and can regularly be seen at Pride events across the country. She has a majorly influential online presence, with over 9 million subscribers to her YouTube channel.

Northern Irish Blu started to perform and build a social media following in 2015. She accrued tens of thousands of Instagram followers, and soon became known for her highly original and entertaining looks that combine surreal and diverse influences with a high level of artistry. She also made an impression on Northern Ireland’s drag scene, competing in competitions and winning crowns to establish herself as one of the nation’s leading queens.

In 2019, Blu was announced as one of the ten competitors on the first UK-based season of popular drag reality show RuPaul’s Drag Race. Competing alongside some of the UK’s biggest names in drag, she continually impressed judges RuPaul Charles, Michelle Visage, Graham Norton and Alan Carr, and earned a coveted Ru Peter Badge. She went on to place in the Top 5 in the show, and even reached the Top 10 of the UK singles charts with the song Break Up (Bye Bye) alongside fellow queens Baga Chipz and Davina De Campo. Today the show has brought Blu to an even larger audience across the globe, and she now has over 300,000 followers on social media. She is a sought-after performer and host at events and functions, and has made appearances at London’s G-A-Y, on the RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Tour, and at RuPaul’s DragCon in New York City.

The Morning After @ Above The Stag

venue: Above The Stag Theatre
72 Albert Embankment ,London | map | distance

| website |

start date: 2020-01-22 | finish date: 2020-03-01

The Morning After is a modern comedy about love, sex and relationships that has been appropriately reimagined with a same-sex couple narrative for its UK debut run at Above The Stag, the UK’s only dedicated LGBT+ theatre space. This delightful comedy will run in the theatre’s main house from 22nd January until 1st March.

Thomas wakes up surprised and naked in a young man’s bed, and as the memories of last night’s one-night-stand come flooding back, he gets quite the shock when the young man’s mother pops her head round the door to not only bring them breakfast in bed, but to join them for a chat and a gossip about the night before.

Thomas soon finds himself caught up in a family of crazy eccentrics for whom no subject or behaviour is inappropriate – that morning’s antics are only the first sign that this is a family that doesn’t do privacy. Or, it turns out, goodbyes…

Will this overfamiliar family’s actions stunt a potential budding romance, or will their openness help to show Thomas that living your life with everything out in the open can be really quite liberating? Either way, it’ll be a ‘morning after’ he’s not likely to forget.

Set entirely in one bedroom, The Morning After is about looking for love and how differing views on ‘openness’ can affect a blossoming relationship. Amongst the humour, the writing highlights more serious topics of human flaws of hypocrisy and dishonesty and asks the question; who, in the end, has the right to judge which route we take to finding love?

Frankie say VAUXHALL! One of the best – and gayest – gay nights in London.

FG2V is a night of eighties synthpop, new wave and trash from Mike Menace DJ (Pink Glove) & special guests. They’ll be luring disco dollies to a night of dark hits, cult classics and queer anthems – and maybe some vice if you get lucky. Think Grace Jones sandwiched between Freddie Mercury and Boy George…

PAOSAR (Poetry, Action Of Solidarity And Reistance) for Blkmoodyboi

venue: The Chateau
Camberwell Church Street ,London | map | distance

start date: 2020-03-13 | finish date: 2020-03-13 | customers: LGBT mixed

QTIBPOC poetry event in London.

PAOSAR – Poets Action Of Solidarity And Resistance – for Blkmoodyboi 

PAOSAR returns for it’s second fundraising event at The Chateau in Camberwell, SE London.  This evening we will gather to support and celebrate one of the most talented and hard working and committed member of the QTIBPOC (Queer trans, intersex, black, people of colour) and Latinx communities. We are raising funds for their post gender-affirming surgery. This will assist in their general living fees, cover wages, and any other additional needs.

Blkmoodyboi is a trans/non-binary,  afro-colombian illustrator,  community worker, and organiser whose artistic work celebrates black and brown trans people with a focus on body-positivity inspired by cartoon/anime styles. Their designs stem from comic book strips, to self-care messages, with cute and squishy characters, and a re-connection with the natural world.

Blkmoodyboi works with migrant womxn and survivors of domestic violence.  They have created and facilitated workshops on intersectionality, empowerment, and illustration. Drawing from a place of resistance they have and continue to work tirelessly for marginalised groups and creating safe spaces.

We have a fantastic line-up of 3 poets and a DJ set from the amazing Lil Cholita. Come by and support QTBIPOC spoken word talent, music and visual art and black and brown trans folk.

Allies are welcome. If you are coming as an ally bring your QTBIPOC friends, pay the ally fee’s, do what you can that elevates the space and the people we are here for.

HOW TO BUILD A HOPE MACHINE

venue: The Chateau
29-33 Camberwell Church Street ,London | map | distance

start date: 2020-03-14 | finish date: 2020-03-14

Things don’t have to be sh**. But utopia ain’t gonna build itself. Join Dr Duckie – aka Ben Walters – for a call to arms, based on his doctoral research with queer performance collective Duckie.

It’s about the neoliberal wobble, the technology of queer fun, and doing family differently. It’sabout the power of homemade mutant hope machines – ways of thinking, feeling and acting that let people without clout build better worlds – right here, right now – one day, one show, one dance at a time.

It’s an hour-long talk with a glamorous assistant and a bit of back-and-forth. It’s full of ideas inspired by Duckie’s work with young LGBTQ+ performers, homeless people and older people, and it’s relevant to anyone wanting to crack on with utopia.

HONESTY BOX TICKETING. Dr Duckie wants you to see HOW TO BUILD A HOPE MACHINE, so there are FREE tickets, or if you are able to, tickets at £5 and £10, depending on your circumstances. All incomes goes to supporting the artists and tech team behind this event

Doors 19:00, Performance 19:15-20:30

Inspirational … wonderful to see glimmers of light in these dark times” – Lois Keidan, Director, Live Art Development Agency

“Uses theory in a seriously fun, informative and inspirational way. A must see” – Professor Ben Campkin, Co-Director, University College London Urban Laboratory

Ben Walters is one of And What? Queer. Arts. Festival’s fave Queer crushes, popping up in the festival on numerous occassions over the years as co-creator of David Hoyle’s ‘The Prime of Ms David Hoyle’ and as a host for the Bruce LaBruce film shorts Q+A.

Presented as part of And What? Queer Arts Festival. 2020 – Performed at The Chateau

Will You Be There Darling? PHOENIX ARTS CLUB

venue: Phoenix Arts Club
1 Phoenix Street ,London | map | distance

start date: 2020-03-21 | finish date: 2020-03-21

Will You Be There Darling? (WYBTD?)

The friendly, inclusive and non-tribal social experience.

Join us on Saturday 21 March 2020 when we take over the exquisite private member’s club, The Phoenix Arts Club, in the heart of the West End, for our exclusive WYBTD Social event where we socialise in a relaxed easy-going environment followed by a cabaret show.

The Phoenix Artist Club has been entertaining entertainers since 1988, and is one of the last remaining truly independent venues in London’s West End. Secreted away down the same little side street used in the opening sequence of Harry Potter and tucked beneath The Phoenix Theatre lies a charming escape from the London norm. With fascinating signed posters, paintings and pictures from decades of theatre productions, a restored art deco interior and hidden treasures lurking in every corner, there’s something new to see on every visit! ‘London’s Best Secret Bar’ – Harper’s Bazaar

The event is in two parts:
– Social from 7:00pm to 8:30pm
– Cabaret Show from 8:30pm by Michael Twaits + Special Guests

Our evening will begin at 7:00pm when WYBTD Members will be encouraged to mingle and socialize. Name tags will be provided to everyone and dedicated hosts will make introductions.

If you haven’t been to any of our Meetups yet we appreciate it can be a bit daunting to come to a social event when you don’t know anyone else there. This is precisely the point of WYBTD though: to make sure everyone is fully integrated in the group especially since almost everyone who comes to our Meetups comes alone.

Then after 8:30pm there will be a live Cabaret Show by fabulous drag artiste Michael Twaits

Michael Twaits is an actor and cabaret performer. He has worked for Pride In London for the past five years hosting Pride’s Got Talent, programming some of the cabaret stages and now hosts Trafalgar Square during Pride

The new Saturday Supershow features comedy, cabaret, drag, musical theatre and top-tier entertainment from the get-go!

TICKETS ARE ONLY AVAILABLE IN ADVANCE! The Phoenix Arts Club is a prestigious private members club which means only their members are normally allowed entry. No one can simply buy tickets at the door and go in! We are honoured to have been allowed to run our WYBTD event there under the strict instructions that we will provide our guest list in advance therefore you need to get your tickets here before the event starts.

Host: Michael R
The entire event will be fully hosted. Your friendly host, Michael R, is a veteran of more than 1,700 Meetup events  making sure everyone is properly introduced and there are no cliques.   – WhatsApp him directly on 07549228398 if you are coming alone (like most of our members) so that he can look out for you and to make introductions.

GAY STAR NEWS recently run an article about our party and you can read all about it here: https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/will-you-darling-meetup-london/#gs.8k567s

A WYBTD? social event is a party night like no other; it is primarily a ‘social mixer’ where everyone integrates in a relaxed, easy-going environment. WYBTD is known for being inclusive and non-judgemental so ALL are welcomed regardless of social background, income, colour, ethnicity, disability, HIV status, size, age, shape or even hairiness.

“None of us are equal until all of us are equal.”

We don’t believe in boxes, labels or tribes; as we’re all queer, one way or another, and are proud too!

We don’t care less if you are top, bottom, vers, bear, clean-cut, daddy, twink, trans, poz, geek, muscle-Mary, hunk, otter or whatever else… this is a social event for US ALL!

We don’t believe in gender stereotypes (such as masc/femme) or slut-shaming or body-shaming. Heels are more than welcome :->

We are all ‘good gays’ some of whom are more shy or socially anxious than others – so we have dedicated hosts making sure everyone is introduced and not left out. Basically, a clubbing night where everyone knows there’s a familiar face to smile with, chat with or ask for help or support.

Cinema Cummodification: Two Documentaries and a Q&A

venue: The Horse Hospital
Colonnade ,London | map | distance

start date: 2020-03-22 | finish date: 2020-03-22 | customers: LGBT mixed

Judith Butler vibes…

A screening of two experimental documentaries co-directed by the Berlin based Turkish director Emre Busse, about the commodification of sexual minorities:

Hyper Masculinity on the Dance Floor (Emre Busse and Selin Devasse, 2016) Duration: 50 minutes

Landlords: SM Apartments in Berlin (Emre Busse and Ceven Knowles, 2016) Duration: 40 min. 24 sec.

Busse will attend a Q&A session after the screening.

Hyper Masculinity on the Dance Floor is about the club economy of seeing and being seen. Hyper masculine bodies and bodily enactments not only communicate a certain idealized muscled aesthetic but also employ and reflect cultural notions of gender, sexuality, desire, race and class. The film asks questions like does hyper-masculine gay men undermine the dominant hetero-patriarchal values around gender and sexuality by showing masculinity to be performative rather than some form of essential identity attainable only by heterosexual men? Or does it reinforce the dominant values of hetero-patriarchy by placing a higher value on masculinity over femininity and a heterosexual gender expression over a homosexual or queer one? In relation to the hyper femininity of drag queens, to what degree is camp and irony involved in the performance of hyper masculinity? This video takes the dancing body on the homo-social dance floor as a research site and aims to wander through the spectrum of hyper masculinity and its expressions, cultural origins and political implications.

Landlords: SM Apartments in Berlin takes us behind the culture of S&M apartment rentals in Berlin in search of the answers to the questions: who owns them, how are they designed, to whom and how they are marketed, and how do hey fit into their niche market within the cities well-known sex tourism trade?”Homeownership fetish” broke out as an American Dream in the beginning of 1900’s, and its historical variation on today’s social predicaments like globalization, immigration issues and gentrification. Berlin -the fetish capitol of Europe- creates a new area of criticism in the homosocial environment which can be associated with commodity fetishism, also provided by more than five fetish housing companies. This documentary, intends to explore the relationship between supply and demand in this niche of the sex community in order to understand and imagine other new possible applications within the non-commercial gay and queer marketplaces.

This programme is part of a wider series of events entitled Turkish Delight which will take place between 17-23 March. Turkish Delight is curated by Queer Art Projects  and supported by Arts Council England National Lottery Project Grants, the Mountain of Arts Research (MARs) and Centre of Feminist Research at Goldsmiths College, Live Art Development Agency (LADA) and Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club (BGWMC).

We are delighted that Ed Davies, a very successfull author will come and speak about his story “My visibly trans body is not broken, mutilated, heartbreaking, or tragic. It’s resilient, defiant, strong, and joyful. And best of all, I don’t feel like I’m looking after someone else’s body anymore. So put aside your assumptions and let me tell my own story about myself.” –@thisboyisstrange

Peaky Blinders Party

venue: Two Brewers
114 Clapham High Street ,London | map | distance

start date: 2020-03-27 | finish date: 2020-03-27

The Peaky Blinders request the pleasure of your company at an event to celebrate the onset of the Roaring Twenties, in the Club Room at the Two Brewers, Clapham.

Live music will be supplied by The Swing II Soul Collective, a 4-piece band with singers Diane Horan Hill, Miles Elliott and Phil Lee-Thomas, presenting classic swing from the era, to ska, funk, soul and Postmodern Jukebox-inspired reinterpretations of modern pop songs.

Dress in your finest Twenties clothing; there will be a Best Dressed Catwalk, with prizes to be won!

What to wear:

For him: Peaky Blinders are known for their sharp suits, crisp shirts and, of course, their trademark caps. A wool overcoat and classic lace-up work boots are a must for any gangster look. A pocket watch is the ultimate accessory. Umbrella optional.

For her: Fashion for women was all about ‘getting loose’. drop waist, a sash or belt around the low waist or hip and a skirt that hangs anywhere from ankle on up to the knee but never above. Cloche hats, seamed stockings, a purse, gloves and maybe jewellery. Shoes T-straps, single or double strap Mary Janes, and walking Oxfords. Elegant and decadent with beaded flapper dresses or long evening gowns. Accessories include the head band, stoles, boas, bracelets and necklaces.

Knickerbocker: Five Yearz!

venue: The Yard Theatre
Queen's Yard ,London | map | distance

start date: 2020-04-10 | finish date: 2020-04-10 | customers: LGBT mixed

If you’d told us when we first started KBR that we’d still be doing this is in FIVE YEARZ time, but in a world even more effed up, with LCD Soundsystem reunited, David Bowie Dead AND STILL NO NEW RIHANNA ALBUM, we would have quite rightly said ‘Je téléphone à la police’.

The first Knickerbocker had no security, everyone snuck their own drinks in, and many were f*ngered on the dancefloor. At least one of these events has continued to happen. But really, JUST LOOK at the glorious corporation we’ve blossomed into! Consider yourselves all shareholders.

If we can be sincere for the most fleeting of moments, it really touches us that a community has formed around the night – we’ve even turned The Yard properly full on gay! GAY RIGHTS! Knickerbocker has been a real joy in an absolute desert of sh**these past few years, and so please, please do join us for the most holy of Good Fridays, for our fifth birthday celebrations.

We’ve put the price up a little just this once, so we can buy some decorations and cake. This isn’t a permanent price increase hun so don’t worry.

With a very special lineup of DJs and performance including:

DJs

Aaron Zimbra

Alex Lawless

Rata

Rodent

THEMENWHOFELL2EARTH

and more TBA

plus very special Birthday performance from reigning Queen of Knickerbocker: Katy Baird!

and more TBA

THERE WILL BE CAKE.

THERE WILL BE POPPERS.

THERE WILL BE BLOOD is a very good film starring Daniel Day Lewis.

Word of Muff Comedy Night

venue: The Book Club
100-106 Leonard Street ,London | map | distance

start date: 2020-04-15 | finish date: 2020-04-15 | customers: mixed

Comedy night in London.

Word of Muff is a comedy variety show, born in May 2017, where stand up, sketch, improv and character comedy – to name just a few – come together to showcase art made by women. Yes, we’re that deluded and think (some) comedy is an art form. It’s also our attempt to steal back the stage time from the straight, white, cis male. The scenario has improved in these (almost) three years, but not enough! Plus, we have a lot of fun running the show and finding opportunities for our peers to showcase their talents.

Speaking of peers – ours in the London comedy scene (and some international scenes we were happy to experience) are awesome and populate our line ups! Past guests include Sophie Duker, Kemah Bob, Bisha K Ali, Lacey Jeka, Lydia Hensler, Athena Kugblenu, Jodie Mitchell and Esther Manito and have appeared in Soho Theatre, 8 out of 10 Cats, The Guilty Feminist, BBC, Union Hall Brooklyn, UCB Theatre NYC, Dubai Opera House and even Marvel Studios writer’s rooms!

We are Mariana Feijó, an international comedian, writer and photographer and Maddy Hunter improv comedian and teacher. Together we produce queer, female and immigrant comedy nights all across London. We’ve performed internationally in Berlin, NYC and Amsterdam and our work has appeared in the Guardian, the BBC, Duckie at The Royal Vauxhall Tavern, Soho Theatre, Funny Women, the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York and more.

“Amazing improv and crunkdance troupe.” Shem Pennant – comedian 

 “Now my queer girl ass feels welcome on stage” Ludmila Bogatchek – improviser & illustrator

“Thank you for making me piss myself laughing” Hollie Foster – musician 

“You put on an awesome night and it was so great to be a part of it” Megan Ford – comedian 

“What a fun evening & great crowd!” Rebecca Schuster – comedian 

“Such a well curated night!” Cordelia Graham – comedian

Word of Muff was created by 20% Less to steal back stage time from the straight white male and will regularly bring you an all female line up of comedians.

Ali, Sophie Duker, Athena Kugblenu, Shelf, Jodie Mitchell, Fathia Al-Ghorri, among many others.

Drag Queen Walking Tour – West Mincer

venue: Halfway To Heaven
7 Duncannon Street ,London | map | distance

start date: 2020-05-10 | finish date: 2020-10-04

Let’s strut around Westminster…

The West Mincer tour is a 2-hour extravaganza around some of central London’s most treasured tourist sights led by some rather delightful drag queens. This isn’t a walking tour like you’ve ever been on before – we are going on a fun, fruity and fabulous journey through the city’s streets.

You will worship the massive erection of Nelson, sing (or lip-sync if you prefer) with the Grand Old Duke of York, hear some salacious details of the royal palaces, and find out some of the sordid tales about the seats of government at Westminster.

And if you’re lucky, Maneeta and Mayowa Monaé may give you an excitingly happy ending…

Your Drag Queen Tour Guides

Mayowa Monaé has twerked her way down from Wakanda to douse you in her sparkling, shimmering glory. She’ll bring hyper energy and kick-ass dance moves to your tour and you might well end up cartwheeling down the street with her (we’ve told her not to do it because Maneeta will not be fishing her out of the river!)

She towers high over everyone – and that’s before she puts on her heels. At least that means you’ll never lose her in the crowds!

Maneeta may be slightly dim, but she makes up for it by dressing bright. She will be bringing you some South Asian fruity fun while dancing through London in her heels and telling you about all the facts she’s learned.

If she lets her sari slip, believe us, it’s on purpose. She does love a big reveal.

The Sights You’ll See

You don’t just see the sights when you go on a walking tour with a drag queen; they will become illuminated in glittery glamour!

On this illuminating journey in and around Westminster, you’ll find out some fun and fruity facts about London’s famous sights…

  • We’ll get round in Trafalgar Square
  • Followed by a strut down Pall Mall
  • A quick peek in the windows at St James’s Palace
  • We will gaze upon the glorious Victoria Memorial and admire Elizabeth’s Buckingham Palace.
  • Stop for a quick break in St James’s Park
  • We’ll get on our knees before Westminster Abbey
  • And then hope for a sexy sighting at the House of Lords
  • Finally we will give the Prime Minister a wave at 10 Downing Street
  • And maybe, just maybe, get a bit of a Mayowa and Maneeta special surprise at the end…

GPN: social and business networking with Craig Jones MBE and Caroline Paige

venue: Civil Service Club
Great Scotland Yard ,London

start date: 2020-10-27 | finish date: 2020-10-27 | time: 6:30pm-8:30pm

Part of an ongoing series of LGBT+ business and networking events at the Civil Service Club.

Join us for a social and business networking drink in the Civil Service Club, a stone throw from Trafalgar Square on Tuesday 27th October 2020.

We are delighted that CEO Craig Jones MBE of Fighting With Pride, accompanied by Co-Chairs Caroline Paige & our member Patrick Lyster-Todd, will say a few words.

Fight with Pride is the new LGBT+ military charity set up on the success of the book of the same name to provide support to and advocacy for all those LGBT+ Veterans from pre-2000 (when the ban on their serving was finally lifted) who lost their jobs.

Many were dismissed, often in very worrying circumstances, with long-term implications for their mental health, with impaired or lost pension rights, medals or good conduct badges removed, careers and expectations trampled over and with even Commissions or Warrants not returned even after the ban went. Others left as they felt they had no alternative, always having to look over their shoulders, impairing pension rights and career success too that they might otherwise have expected. The charity intends to work closely with other Service charities and with the Ministry of Defence itself to agree restitution and provide a solution to these and associated issues so that, swiftly, a final line can be drawn in the sand and LGBT+ Veterans and serving personnel can be more closely aligned, going forward as one single military family. The Veterans Minister has publicly indicated his support of such measures at a Reception in January 2020 to acknowledge the 20th anniversary of this ban going and the exceptional progress made since, except in this one area.

Gary Youssef will also speak about financial education.

All members have the opportunity, not at all compulsory, to say a few words, if they choose to do so, 2 minutes maximum each but most fit this within 30 seconds like “Hi, I am J-F and organise events and get people together, chat with me after to find out more or if you need help with anything”.

The privatised area reserved for us is at the further end of the main bar so order your drink(s) in passing and join us, pick up your badge and start meeting likeminded people. 

Your name (when you register) is on the list at the reception, there is no need to print any confirmation, we expect you.

It is a free event to our contributing and honorary members and they take priority in the bookings: badges are prepared.  Non-members are asked to pay £10 towards the organisation of the evening either in cash or card on arrival.

Share this event with and invite your friends and colleagues, ask them to join us on www.gpn.one (Membership is only £20 a year…)

Please share this event on Facebook and Twitter with your friends.

I very much look forward to seeing you then.

With all best wishes,

Gay Professional Network: social and business networking with guest speaker Paul Burston

venue: Civil Service Club
Great Scotland Yard ,London | map | distance

start date: 2020-11-24 | finish date: 2020-11-24

Join us for a social and business networking drink in the Civil Service Club, a stone throw from Trafalgar Square on Tuesday 24th November 2020.

We are delighted that Paul Burston, a British journalist and author will come and speak about his latest book The Closer I Get, that was partly inspired by his experience of online harassment.

Paul worked for the London gay policing group GALOP and was an activist with ACT-UP before moving into journalism. He edited, for some years, the gay and lesbian (later LGBT) section of Time Out magazine.

His first novel Shameless, published in 2001, was praised by The New York Times.

All members have the opportunity, not at all compulsory, to say a few words, if they choose to do so, 2 minutes maximum each but most fit this within 30 seconds like “Hi, I am J-F and organise events, chat with me after to find out more or if need help with any forthcoming celebration, meeting, incentive, conference and events.”
