Reflecting and Empowering Westminster's LGBT Communities



Westminster LGBT Community Forum is the community group for LGBT people living, working or visiting our great city.

We are a small voluntary group, supported by Westminster City Council, and working with Westminster Police and a range of Westminster based organisations to support our community, and improve services and provision for LGBT people across Westminster. 

We work under a Constitution agreed by our members in May 2020, which is available here.
