A month celebrating lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgender history has begun.

Haringey Council is reflecting upon contributions made by the LGBT+ community in 2017.

Throughout February the Council will bring news from Zenith Motorcycles owner Karen Neill, the Wise Thoughts charity, Haringey’s cabinet member for regeneration and housing Cllr Alan Strickland, Woodside High School and Haringey Police.

Haringey Council is intent on furthering the borough’s commitment to LGBT+ inclusivity.

Cllr Eugene Ayisi, cabinet member for communities, said: “Haringey’s diversity is one of its brilliant strengths and I’m really pleased we are able to highlight some of the people who are making a real difference in our borough as part of LGBT History Month.

“As a council we are proud of Haringey’s inclusivity and are committed to doing all that we can to promote this across the borough.”

Haringey has the eighth highest LGBT+ community in the capital, and has a rich history in supporting LGBT+ rights.
