Aurora is working with TransPALS on an event on Saturday 19th November 2016 for the International Transgender Day of Remembrance (celebrated worldwide on the 20th). More details about the Croydon event on the LGBT Croydon website and on its own Facebook page. For other events around the country see the TDOR UK website. There will be a display in Croydon Library in the week leading up to the event.
Aurora took part in Croydon PrideFest on 28 August 2016. An Aurora banner was carried in the parade, and we shared a stall in Surrey Street with other local LGBT organisations.
We've been updating the information on our reporting page and helping to produce a new leaflet on hate crime reporting. The new leaflet, featuring the "Stop the hate" logo, was launched on 20 April 2016 at an event in Croydon Town Hall.
We've also been involved in events for IDAHOT, the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.
Throughout February (LGBT History Month) Aurora once again featured in the displays about local LGBT organisations in Croydon Library. The national History Month theme this year is "Religion, Belief and Philosophy" and the logo represents "the leap of faith". There was a full programme of History Month events in Croydon.
Croydon police have issued an urgent warning about local gay men being attacked in their homes following a contact made on Grindr. For more details, see our News page.
