Reading LGBT Labour
Reading LGBT Labour includes all members that identify anywhere on the LGBT Spectrum. We have close links with local LGBT partners such as Support U and Reading Pride, as well as links into LGBT Labour nationally and major networks such as Stonewall, Trans Media Watch and other national charities.
We’ve recently setup social media feeds on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram so please follow those and share out our content to help grow the membership. We’re very active within the local LGBT scene and always looking for new members to assist and help us with activities so please drop us a line!
