We usually offer over 40 different events each month: from singing to creative writing to walks. We aim to provide a range of opportunities that allow LGBTQ+ people over 50 from across London to meet each other, have fun, and feel confident to be themselves.
In line with continued government advice during the Covid-19 outbreak, all of our face-to-face activities are suspended.
For those members who are online, we would love to see you at one of the regular video calls listed below to help you stay connected to the wider LGBTQ+ community. If you don’t have a secure internet connection, you can join our telephone befriending service and receive phone calls from a friendly, trained volunteer.
If you are a newcomer to Opening Doors London and want to get a flavour of what we usually have on offer, check out our listings from March 2020 below.
