Chair’s Report 2021

Our AGM for 2021 was held on October 25th and our Chair, Vanessa Monaghan, gave her report on the happenings in the group since October 2020.

This was my first full year as Chair of the LGBT Network and I’m delighted with the progress the group has made in that time. I’m also delighted with the feedback we’ve been getting from you about our events.

We started off last year with our AGM and Q&A with Celebrity Masterchef Champion, Riyadh Khalaf. We had great attendance and got someone fantastic press coverage for the event.

After that success we held monthly meet ups with musicians, film directors, activists and we’ve held nights on Housing for Older LGBTQ people and had a night celebrating our Trans Community.

Update: 23rd July 2021

Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts and there not being enough hours in the day, we’re going to have to postpone our chat with Conleth on Monday. We’re hoping to re-arrange the date as soon as possible. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Join London Irish LGBT Network for our monthly virtual meet-up on Monday July 26th at 8pm. This month we’re joined by Northern Irish singer-songwriter, Conleth Kane.

Conleth has just released his new single ‘Proud’, which has been remixed by remixers to the stars, 7th Heaven.

Described by OK Magazine! as ‘the breath of fresh air we all need right now’ and QX Magazine as “an infectiously energetic, refreshingly cheerful Singer/Songwriter”, Conleth Kane recorded his debut album ‘Proud – Live in London’ at a sold out show at The Crazy Coqs in London’s West End in Oct 2018 seeing him shoot to Number 2 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter Charts in Feb 2019.

Originally hailing from Northern Ireland, Kane trained at the prestigious Arts Educational Schools in London and went on to perform roles on screen as well as in Musicals in the West End and all over the UK/Ireland before becoming a Singer/Songwriter.
