Be proud of the person you are today, bring your favourite childhood photograph and strike a pose on Wednesday 17 May – as we welcome the LGBT community to join Tom Dingley’s #Outcome project.

Come along to the Civic Centre on Wednesday 17 May, from 10am to 4pm, when it will be “Lights, Camera, Action!” at our free pop-up photo shoot and information event to celebrate International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia. The event is open to everyone, but if you identify as LGBT you can take part in the photo shoot and #OUTCOME project.

Councillor Varsha Parmar, portfolio holder for Equality and Wellbeing, said:

“We know coming out is not an easy journey - this event is a great way to celebrate and be proud of how far you’ve come. 

“Tom’s #Outcome photo shoot is going to be great fun and I hope you can all join me in celebrating the achievements of the LGBT community and people from all walks of life.”

Harrow Council is committed to promoting and celebrating the diversity of Harrow and fostering community cohesion.

In February, Harrow Council was named as the “most improved organisation in the UK” in Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index – which ranks the best employers for improving equality in the workplace, specifically for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff.

All pictures taken at the photo shoot will be available on photographer Tom Dingley’s website, for more information email tom_dingley@hotmail.co.uk. To find out what support is available to the LGBT community, email the council at equalities@harrow.gov.uk.
