Opening Doors London (ODL) is the biggest charity providing information and support services specifically for older Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans* (LGBT*) people in the UK.

We are a membership organization providing regular social opportunities across the capital to help develop networks and communities for LGBT* people, aged over 50.

We also offer specialist training and consultancy for statutory and voluntary organisations, such as care homes, housing associations and hospitals, to help them understand the needs of older LGBT* people.

Membership is FREE

Membership is open to anyone who identifies as:

  • Over 50
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans*

Members receive a monthly newsletter packed with information and listings for activities and events around the capital, to help build support and social inclusion.

Opening Doors London is here to support the older LGBT* community live full, vibrant and respected lives free from isolation, loneliness , discrimination and prejudice.

ODL is here to let older LGBT* people know they are not alone.
