    Weʼve raised £2,034 to Support Gay's the Word London during the Pandemic

    London
    Funded on Tuesday, 4th August 2020

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The current outbreak of the Coronavirus in the UK has meant that many small businesses that host a multitude of LGBTQ+ community events have had to shut their doors or are working at reduced capacity. We know that for the foreseeable future, businesses like Gay's The Word bookshop will be facing potential financial uncertainty.

    We feel that Gay's the Word is such a special and unique community hub and are hoping to help support it throughout the pandemic and its aftermath as best as we can. The shop has been crucial to supporting and connecting LGBTQ+ people with each other for decades; be it via discussion or book groups or their literary expert wisdom. This is why we have decided to collect funds for the bookshop. Every penny counts and will be forwarded directly to the shop. The shop has given us so much joy over the years and it would leave a deep void if it were to shut permanently. We would be more than grateful for any donation.

    Please note that this JustGiving campaign is organised by the facilitators of the LDG and the 'A Lesbian Affair' Podcast team - not the bookshop directly. We usually collect donations for the shop as a 'Thank you' for hosting us every week so this is our way of giving back.

      Update from the Page owner

      Thank you all for your donations so far! We have crossed the £500 mark, which is great news. You all are absolutely fantastic. We are so happy to see this many people support the bookshop. The shop remains in lockdown and we still face uncertainty in terms of how this will affect them in future. So given the lack of revenue (mail order procedures have also seized to continue due to the current risk), we will continue to collect contributions or donations for their upkeep. Stay safe and take care, The LDG Facilitation Team
