Yorkshire Housing’s corporate centre, Dysons Chambers, is located in the heart of Leeds’ gay community.
When Leeds Pride was held on our doorstep, we were proud to support the event.
Over 20,000 people joined in the celebrations and it got us thinking about Yorkshire’s lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
Here’s a round up of some LGBT groups and events.
Fruitbowl Youth Group: Youth group for LGBT or questioning young people meet on Wednesday evenings in Wakefield. Ring 01924 303 600.
Rainbow Family Network: A support group for LGB parents in West Yorkshire. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Out in Yorkshire: A group for lesbian and bi-sexual women who meet first Sunday of the month in Leeds City Museum café between 2pm-4pm and arrange other activities too.
Switch: A social group for all Transgender people meet on the last Tuesday of the month in Leeds between 6-8pm. Email email@example.com.
