Well 2014 is drawing to a close. We've had a busy year with members experiencing set-backs and successes, highs and lows. We've spoken at conferences, taken part in some great arts activities & two gay prides, met with the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration to help shape new Home Office guidance.
Thank you to everyone who has signed a petition, tweeted an airline, given a donation, attended one of our events, hosted an arts workshop, or cheered us on at Pride. We really appreciate it.
*Thank you to Raise the Bar*
A special thank you to Claire Bennett, Kisha Morris and Labels Bar Soho for their continued support through their Raise the Bar events. The evenings showcase the talents of LGBT artists and raise awareness of issues faced by LGBT asylum seekers. They also raise donations towards the work of Lesbian Immigration Support Group. A LISG member or volunteer attends each event, and is always overwhelmed by the welcome and the fantastic atmosphere.
*LISG festive lunch*
We had a great time at our end of year festive lunch yesterday! We prepared & shared food and then Karen taught us some belly dancing moves.
