South East Wales LGB Forum and Blog

September 7, 2007

The South East Wales LGB Forum is in the process of developing a web presence which we hope will become an active space for community information sharing and discussion. We really want people to feel involved, so do let us know if you have any comments and feel free to link to the site and send us any relevant links/news/events we’ve omitted to add.

We’ve also started a Forum blog. This will function as an online newsletter to keep people informed about Forum activities, local events and up-to-date news of interest to LGBT communities in SEWales. There’s a comment facility and you can also send us information which we’ll post there for you.  http://sewlgbforum.blogspot.com/
