London Pride, 2019

Soho Angels

In my spare time I volunteer with the Soho Angels. The Soho Angels are designed to make London’s nightlife safer for everyone. They reflect Soho’s roots as a place of cultural significance for LGBT+ people and will work to ensure Soho nightlife remains a safe, inclusive and understanding space for everyone who visits. The Soho Angels can be found most Friday and Saturday nights in Soho until 5am, and supporting major events such as Pride.
