Silver Pride UK - Celebrating 50 years of LGBT+ marches

Keep well. Have fun. Stay Connected.


Creating community for older LGBT+ people.

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

Through championing social inclusion, forging new support networks and fortifying old solidarity, Friends of Dorothy aspires to restore connections between LGBT+ people and illuminate for LGBT+ communities that today we stand on the shoulders of giants.

Simply, Friends of Dorothy will walk the road with you.


We love to make new friends, connect people and share stories. If you are looking to meet a like-minded group who support each other to grow older, more confidently together, then give us a go. Email or call 03333 449 017.


Whether it’s providing social spaces, putting on an event, offering your skills, befriending or telefriending, we’re always in need of more support. Email or call 03333 449 017 and tell us how you can get involved.


As a charity championing social inclusion, it’s essential we keep our events and activities accessible. Your donation will make a massive difference to the wellbeing of our members. Money raised go to developing further reach of Friends Of Dorothy across the UK, core costs and developing our tele-friending service.
