COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR LGBT –
LGBT Northern Social Group (LGBTnsg) was created almost two years ago as an LGBTQ+ Newcastle social group to provide the community with a safe space to make new connections. With participants from across the North of England and Scotland, this pivotal organisation has grown to over 1300 members. They aim to promote local charities and organisations with their events, as well as provide face to face events which gives members the opportunity to socialize in chilled and safe environments. Providing activities away from the typical LGBTQ+ drinking scene, LGBTnsg have organised an LGBTQ+ focused Children’s Christmas Party, Halloween parties, Fancy dress film nights, Sunday meals out, Coffee mornings, Breakfast meet ups and much more. Not afraid to shy away from important political debates around the UK and the world, LGBTnsg have been involved with local political talks with MPs and councillors about the GRA.
