The London LGBT Tourist Information Office has welcomed it’s one hundredth visitor today. The service, which is London’s first ever tourist office aimed specifically for the LGBT community, provides help and advice for community projects, as well as information about Soho’s vibrant gay scene.
Project director Shaun Newport told Pinknews.co.uk:
“I’m really pleased with how well it has gone down with the community. We obviously get a lot of people visiting London who want to know about the bars and clubs, but we have also get a lot of people who want advice on health facilities in the area.”
The LGBT service, which is situated in London’s Chinatown, was launched last Friday and attracted support from local LGBT businesses and community groups.
“Since the awful homophobic attack last week we have had a lot of people wanting to know how they can lend there support to LGBT community projects.
“I think that it’s really good to have a place where people can come, have a coffee and find out more about London’s vibrant scene.
“We are currently in discussion with a number of venues and businesses and we will soon be selling tickets for events, we really want to have as many people working with us as possible and we are always on the lookout for gay businesses that would like to get involved.”
