Join us on Tuesday 25th October at 8pm for our online AGM. We’ve had a great year and we’re delighted to share all our updates with our existing and new members on the 25th.
A full agenda will be posted on our website closer to the date but we look back at the past year and look forward to what we have in store for the next year.
This will be a great opportunity to catch up and find out more about the LGBT Network, you never know, you might even want to get more involved!
Before all the usual voting happens we are delighted that we will have a speaker from the ‘Disregard and Redress Advisory Group’ joining us to tell us a little about what they’re doing.
“Following on from the State apology for the criminalisation of homosexuality in 2018, the Government are pursuing a process that will lead to Disregards being provided to those convicted under the laws that were repealed in 1993. Currently, the Department of Justice has a Working Group, which includes some members of the community, looking at the best approach to Disregards. A public consultation on the proposed Disregard Scheme will begin shortly. A small group of activists have come together in a project to promote wide engagement with the public consultation, and with a focus on the broader restorative justice aspects of the treatment of LGBTI people in Ireland since independence. The project looks to memorialise and commemorate those directly affected by the criminal legislation, recognising the human rights abuse of the legislation, and to collect information and be a resource on the impact of the criminal legislation on LGBT people and communities over the decades. London Irish LGBT Network has been invited to be part of the Advisory Group for the Project.“
To ensure we can reach and include a wider number of our members, we will also have our AGM online this year.
But, as always, our meetings are a safe space for our LGBTQ community so we ask you to register in advance for a free ticket.
You can register for the event on Eventbrite.
