Surrey is a county in south-east England, considered one of the home counties. Surrey is divided for administrative purposes into 11 boroughs and districts: Elmbridge, Epsom and Ewell, Guildford, Mole Valley, Reigate and Banstead, Runnymede, Spelthorne, Surrey Heath, Tandridge, Waverley. and Woking.

Parts of the original county are now included within Greater London although in some cases retaining "Surrey" as a postal county. Surrey County Council still has its administrative headquarters in the London Borough of Kingston upon Thames.

LGBT history

There was a Surrey CHE Group.

SLAGO (the Surrey and London Association of Gay Organisations) originally included groups in Surrey as the name implies, but the current member groups are all based in Greater London.

Gay Surrey is a charity serving the county.

Surrey County Council operates Twister LGBT youth groups in several parts of the county.[1]
