Research project: LGBT+ people and GP Services in Later Life

Michael Toze, a PhD researcher at the University of Lincoln, is looking for lesbian and bisexual women aged 60+ throughout the UK who would be willing to participate in a one-off confidential interview about GP services. At present there is little academic research about general practice services for LGBT+ people later in life. As a result it can be difficult for services and local LGBT+ groups to identify ways in which services could be made more inclusive

I’m looking to hear about what’s important to you about GP services, and get a sense of different experiences, whether good, bad or mixed. Interviews will be arranged at a time and place convenient for you.  For more details visit or get in touch at or ring 01522 835443.

Lesbian walking Holidays 2016

Informal lesbian walking breaks taking place in 2016 (organised voluntarily- not a walking company!)  

These breaks are happening in the Yorkshire Dales (May), Lake District (August), Gower (August) and Wye Valley (September), giving opportunities to explore some beautiful areas. They're for smallish sized groups - maximum twelve and are over a weekend or a few days. It's friendly and relaxed, staying together in small hotels or B and B's, (own room or shared) and with evenings for eating, drinking and fun. Twelve women came to the first of these get-togethers in the Chilterns last autumn -most came alone, a few with a friend or partner. Everyone had a good time, so it's encouraged me to plan some more.

Walks on each day are with an experienced and friendly walk leader. They're not arduous and it's all very flexible - there's no obligation to walk if you prefer to do your own thing - or stay in bed!

A number of women have already booked to go on the different breaks in 2016 and there are still some  spaces  available.

More details (info sheet) from Sue:

Or join the (closed, so private) Facebook group on
You can see info and updates on there  (almost 100 women have shown interest and joined since it was set up recently.)

Welcome to the Voyage

Welcome to The Voyage

A horn blasts loud into the night. People appear. Something glitters in the dark. Your feet tap to the heartbeats of strangers. A journey is about to begin.

The Party Departs Fri 18 Dec 7pm - 2am.

Don’t be late.

Tickets are available on our website at early bird price of £15 until 18th Nov and then the prices goes to £18.
Tickets are selling fast so get them while you can -
Tickets include a complimentary drink & an evening of music & entertainment

The Night

Go backwards. It’s 1900 & the world is grey. In the gloom it’s hard to tell where one day ends & the next begins. Power lies with shadows. Here is not a good place to be different.

Some of us are plotting an escape - outsiders dreaming of the sun. There are rumours of a journey. A pilgrimage for all kinds of ‘other’, part-party, part-passing - polychromatic & peppered with rum.

A handsome duo approach. Flashing an illicit neon glove, the gentlewoman whispers “the horizon is ours for the taking”. The chap reaches inside his long dark coat & presents you with a strange-looking ticket, “swap dirge for hope & high spirits”. Flourishing a sapphire handkerchief he winks & extends his hand.

Abandon the bland.

Join us for a kaleidoscopic celebration of life.

Expect: Grey sleeves & glitter. Grog and prosecco. Dancing, DJs & Dazzle. Stowaways & Sawdust. Stars & Sky. New Friends, Old Friends & A Foggy Head.

The Location is SECRET. Instructions including costume suggestions will be sent after booking.

Dress Code

Top Hats & Sunday Best. Stiff collars, starched shirts & rebellious dashes of day-glo. Expedition get-up. The period traveller. Mariners and urchins.

 The Voyage is the 4th creation from Indigo & Members. Following in the sprit of 'Prohibition', 'Blackout' and 'The Night Circus', this Xmas event celebrates our wonderful diverse city.
