Older & Out
This small social group ‘Older & Out Preston’ meets every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, 3pm – 5pm at the Ham & Jam Coffee Shop, 50 Lancaster Rd, Preston, PR1 1DD.
The social group takes place in a bright safe space where people can be themselves and socialise free from discrimination. Although primarily aimed at LGB&T people 50+ the group is welcoming to LGB&T people and ‘straight allies’ of all ages and acts as an alternative to the ‘Pub & Club’ scene. The group is currently trying to establish itself as an independently run group, after initial support from Age Concern Central Lancashire.
