Nerdy Pub Quiz

To celebrate Stonewall Housings 33 Birthday, we are having a fundraising pub quiz!

We're having a fundraiser “Nerdy Pub Quiz” to raise funds for some of the LGBTQ+ young people in our supported housing to attend next year’s Accumul8 photography project.  

So what is so Nerdy about this Nerdy Pub Quiz?? What we mean is that you need to really know about, love and be obsessed by all things futuristic and sci-fi on film and telly, and that is related to Star Trek, Harry Potter, Star Wars, Tolkein or Doctor Who.

The Stonewall Housing Nerdy Quiz Fundraiser is on 18th October, and is at Doggets Coat and Badge, the lovely pub just by Blackfriars Bridge. You can enter individually or in a team of 5 people and you can book your place here

Not a big sci-fi fan? Don't worry!  Come and join us for a great night out with lots of great prizes, such as:

For second place, there are the following prizes for the team:

Celebrating living with Stonewall Housing #SH30/25

Celebrating 30 years of providing safe spaces for young LGBT people.

"Stonewall Housing has six houses in London supporting young lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people and we have really appreciated Diane Abbott and Lynne Featherstone taking the time to visit our accommodation in their constituencies during our 30th anniversary year. Despite recent legal achievements for the LGBT* communities, the numbers approaching us because of family breakdown, harassment and domestic abuse is increasing. Thanks to funding from Hackney, Haringey, Islington and Newham Councils our housing offers young people who often have no family support, safe housing with support to achieve their full potential." (Bob Green, CEO)

"For most of our young LGBT* clients, being with Stonewall Housing not only represents the security of a safe space but also an opportunity to restart their lives and achieve a stable grounding in life-skills. Many have been deprived of a loving affirmative family or community. Many have suffered from sustained emotional, physical and psychological abuse. Some have been targeted and victimized. All have been denied safe shelter. By supporting clients to reframe their lives and reconnect with their own resources we see them increasing their own access to life-sustaining choices. By receiving consistent, guided support a client’s engagement with their life reboots. Our clients are more confidently able to regain access to education, apprenticeships and volunteering, and negotiate employment. Within the LGBT* affirmative environment that SH provides, clients report and demonstrate a greater capacity for peer-to-peer support and community engagement. This is perhaps their one opportunity to install a robust sense of self-determination, drive and direction, to become the authentic adults (citizens) they are meant to be." (Alex Kylen, Operations Manager)

(We recently wrote about one of our clients, Karine, being shortlisted for The Prince's Trust & Samsung Celebrate Success Awards, supported by Evening Standard. Karine's story is simply the latest success experienced by SH clients.)
