About us

Inclusive Peterborough

An LGBTQIA+ Social Group for the Peterborough, UK area.

A relaxed and informal social group for making new friends, socialise and get to know people in Peterborough and surrounding areas. This group is for those who describe themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual and the wider ‘+’ community including those who identify as Asexual, Intersex, Queer or Questioning.
Its also for their friends and families. All singles and couples welcome! Please have a face pic on your profile! Lets get together.
In 2016 Peterborough ‘won’ the online Homophobia capital of England award in a national newspaper.  We also were voted as the ‘worst places to live’ in an annual report.  This is not acceptable and our mission is to make Peterborough a nicer, safer more inclusive place to live for ALL its residents.

Our Goals: Inclusion, Safety & Community

How do we plan on doing this?

  • Being Visible – We are Here, We are Queer, Get used to it!
  • Being Community – We are stronger together.
  • Being Loud – Calling out injustice and hate.
  • Queering the Norm – In a world where to be “normal” means to be … not Gay, we aim to be seen, to show up and to be ourselves. Redefining the expectation of what is “normal” to include everyone.

Perhaps the LGBTQ+ community is only so loud, out, and proud because equality hasn’t been reached yet and there is immediate value in raising our collective voices. There are still countries where it is illegal and/or heavily punishable to be openly LGBTQ+; there is still much work to be done in terms of rights and protections for transgender individuals, non-binary folk, and others.
