When I searched on Google for "gay petts wood" I was surprised to find that I came out top of the search results list, further searching revealed nothing much about gay community living in Petts Wood.

Having spoken to a couple of mates about this inadequacy, we created this web-site for you as a "Gay Guide" to Petts Wood and its local services.

We have now been going as a social group since 2003 and
have found that the gay community has grown in Petts Wood since we started, purely because of our  web-site and our social networking.  

Gay Petts Wood (or GPW for short) hope you find this web-site useful and maybe we'll see you at one of our future events.

Abuse because of someone's sexual orientation or gender identity is hate crime.

via the Met's online crime reporting facility

The Metropolitan Police Service continues to have an LGBT liaison officer on every borough to assist LGBT people living, working or visiting London. To speak to your local LGBT liaison officer please contact your borough community Safety unit.
