All That's Gay in Weymouth

LGBT residents and visitors to Weymouth have a new web site to help them enjoy their time in the town. 

“There is so much going on now in our area for LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans) visitors”, said Colin who helps to organize the Weymouth Gay Group.

Colin continued, "We put all the local LGBT events and info on our web site. Weymouth needs to catch up with seaside towns like those in Devon and Bournemouth, but Brighton may be difficult - it leads the way. The Pink pound is up for grabs! – and why should not Weymouth market itself as a more LGBT friendly place than it has been perceived in the past.”
