Recent meetings

Gaydio reaches an affluent audience

Leon des Bruxells meeting on 17 July 2014

At our July meetings we heard about radio station gaydio which is available online, on DAB in London and Brighton, and 88.4FM in Manchester. We also heard about Next Fall play at Southwark Playhouse about two gay men in a committed relationship with a twist, with one, Luke, being devoutly religious and the other, Adam, an atheist. The production has already got 95% of the funding needed.

From other members we heard; how IT experts can solve your office network problems; how body language and voice expert anna_ostergren can help improve your presentations and business pitches; the spectaclular Soho cabaret boylexe; and how the Mayfair PR agency is pushing the gender boundaries in modelling and fashion.
