Lewisham CHE Group was founded in Lewisham in February 1972. It was recognised as a CHE group in March 1972 [1]. In 1976 its members started filming for an amateur film David is Homosexual. The film was first shown in May 1978 [2]. Members of Lewisham CHE went on to found Lewisham Friend and helped set up CHE groups in surrounding boroughs.[3] Lewisham CHE closed down in the mid-1980s, but in 1991 some of its former members founded Lewisham Gay Alliance, later Lewisham Lesbian and Gay Alliance (2LGA).
