Friends of Dorothy

Full logo with tagline-01 (1)

Friends of Dorothy is a charity that champions social inclusion for older LGBT+ people by hosting regular activities and events. We are based in Leeds and Manchester with a national aspirational remit, welcoming inclusive group that supports our members to keep well, have fun and stay connected.

We love to meet new people and share stories. If you are looking to meet a like-minded group who support each other to grow older, more confidently together.
