About Us

Barnsley LGBT Forum was established in 2008 as a way of bringing the community together to look at issues and concerns that affected us. The forum quickly grew with members and supporters to where we now have over 670 members.

We have established strong links with our partner agencies including Barnsley council, Bernslai homes, Barnsley hospital, South Yorkshire Police, South Yorkshire fire and rescue and Barnsley college.

Barnsley LGBT forum helps to organise events through the year for the community such as Pride alongside the local LGBT night and our amazing drag artists that keep the events fun and entertaining! and Gay history month as well as working with other equality forums to build strong community links. We have meetings every month be it a formal meeting or social events such as meal clubs.
