LGBT history

Brian Paddick grew up in Sutton and attended the local Grammar School.

There was briefly a Sutton LGBT Forum ("LGBT in Sutton"): items on its website are dated between 2007 and 2009.[1] It was launched on "Wednesday 26 November" (presumably 2008) at the Robin Hood, West Street, with speakers from Sutton Police, Sutton Council, Galop and the IAG.[2][3]

Let me Out (LMO) is/was an LGBT youth group for Sutton and Merton.[4]

SMALL (Sutton Mature And Loving Life) was a group for older LGBT people in Sutton.[5]

A new Sutton LGBT Forum was set up in 2013 by Tyrone Ashby with support from Age UK Sutton.[6]
