The White Swan needs your help
The White Swan in Limehouse has been a gay venue for over 30 years, providing cabaret and great nights out out for the local and more widespread LGBT+ community. Following incidents of homophobic abuse from passing members of the public and even eggs thrown from cars at people using the outside smoking area, the venue put a 1.8 metre fence up around the area in place of the smaller fence that was already there. Unfortunately Tower Hamlets council are saying that this extended protection must come down until the applied for planning application is processed. Obviously the team at the Swan are worried for the safety of their customers and don’t want this to happen. They need Boyz readers, especially those who frequent the venue, to write to the council and local MP via them, to express their concern about this and say that the fence should stay. You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and the Swan will forward it to the council.
