Celebrating LGBT Life in Tower Hamlets

Welcome to Rainbow Hamlets, the home of LBGT life in Tower Hamlets.

Rainbow Hamlets is a forum for LBGT people who live, work or have other strong associations with the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It was set up by Tower Hamlets Council in 2009 to support the local LGBT community in line with the Council’s Sexual Orientation Equality Scheme. However we are fully independent of the Council.

We aim to be the independent voice of LGBT people in Tower Hamlets; championing and celebrating the diverse lives, needs and experiences of the many LGBT people who live, work or socialize in the borough. If that includes you, perhaps you would like to get involved?

There’s no formal membership scheme; forum meetings are open to all community members. Meetings are also attended by organizations which belong to the Tower Hamlets Partnership such as the Council, local NHS trusts, the Police and registered social landlords so it really is a chance to have your say on the issues which affect community life in Tower Hamlets.
