Based in London, we exist to to provide an opportunity for people to watch and play cricket irrespective of gender or sexual orientation. Our vision is to assert upon the cricketing and wider sporting community an ideal of total equality and inclusion.
We conduct pre-season training at Lords and The Oval. We play weekly 40-over matches on Sundays through the Summer Season and play in an indoor cricket league through the off-season. In 2019 as well as friendlies we are playing in the Middlesex and Essex Invitational League – should be exciting! We also offer sporadic 20-over matches, an annual pre-season tour somewhere abroad (Corfu looks likely for 2019) and an exciting social calendar as well.
Goslings is a popular LGBT+ badminton club running multiple fun and inclusive weekly sessions across London. We welcome players of all abilities and provide a safe, open environment for LGBT+ badminton players and friends.

The Gay Outdoor Club is a members club – no one is paid for their role in it and no-one makes a profit from it. Every member is welcome to play a part in running the club, perhaps by organising an event, by helping to run a group or serving on the committee.
To many of our members, GOC is more than just a walking group – they have found enduring friendships and the opportunity to get out and do events that they otherwise wouldn’t have had the chance to.
GOC consists of about 40 groups, which are either geographically based or specialise in a type of activity (e.g. climbing), and all events are organised through one of those groups. The local groups are run by one or more coordinators who schedule their events, are available to answer questions about their group and welcome new people.
GBMCC began in 1977 as a club for gay men and women bikers in the UK; we are the biggest gay biking club in Europe. Members come from all over the UK and there an increasing number from Europe and Overseas.
Our members are of all ages and backgrounds. We naturally have varied biking interests, but we are primarily a road-riding club. Riding experience ranges from novice through to advanced riders and club racers. It is our interest in motorcycles and motorcycling, which bring us together. The club offers its members a lively programme of events as well as support and friendship.
Our events are local, national and European. We have a regional network of local area contacts who co-ordinate regular meetings every month, generally a mixture of riding and social gatherings, and there are unique events with national appeal.
Spectra works to improve the choices, health and well-being of people like you.

We aim for knowledgeable, aware and empowered individuals and communities who have clear, accurate, credible and non-judgemental wellbeing and health information and quality services that are relevant and accessible.
The clinical research unit within the Grahame Hayton unit undertakes, leads and manages clinical trials within the rapidly changing areas of HIV, sexual health and all liver diseases. Our dedicated team of research health care providers offer a very high standard of care to patients from all backgrounds and ethnicities. These studies enable our patients to access cutting edge treatments through clinical trials that are not yet available through the NHS. Within a clinical drug trial, patients are monitored and investigated more rigorously than in a general clinic. We also manage smaller academic studies which help us to understand how the various diseases manifest and how we can then treat or prevent them.
