Join our Spectrum 2023 annual conference!

Spectrum, L&Q’s LGBTQ+ colleague network, is holding its annual conference next month, and this year we’d like to invite residents to join us too. Everyone is welcome – we’ll be joining up with our Trafford Housing Trust colleagues in Manchester too!

The event will take place on Friday 10 March, starting with lunch at 12:30pm at venues in central London and Manchester.

For those unable to attend in person, you can join us virtually, from 1:15pm. 

Guest speakers

In London, we’ll be joined by Spectrum’s mental health charity of the year, ELOP which offers counselling sessions for LGBTQ+ people, run by LGBTQ+ people.

Joining us in Manchester is the founder and CEO of House of Rainbow, Rev’d Jide Macaulay, an openly HIV-positive activist and an openly gay British Nigerian Christian minister.

We’ll also be joined by speakers from Micro Rainbow, a charity helping LGBTQ+ asylum seekers.
