London Lesbian & Gay Switchboard


At Switchboard we provide an information, support and referral service for lesbians, gay men and bisexual and trans people – and anyone considering issues around their sexuality

They listen to all kinds of calls, and take everyone seriously. Whatever made you call, They are glad you did and want to help you.

Here are some of the things people might call about:

  • Information about support groups for someone who thinks they are trans or nonbinary.
  • Support for a man who has been a victim of homophobic abuse, but has previously had a bad experience going to the police.
  • Contact details for an LGBT-friendly therapist.
  • Support for a lesbian teenager thrown out of her home by her parents, and who needs somewhere to stay.
  • Information on how to get to local gay pubs for someone with mobility issues.
  • Times and places for a local bisexual social group.
  • Listening to some of the concerns a mother has about her child who is trans.
