Join us at Tollcross Community Centre for games, crafts, archery, an LGBT Bake-off competition and bake sale and a fantastic opportunity to find out more information about some of Edinburgh's LGBT community groups who will be hosting stalls to promote their activities.

The event is family friendly with free entry for all. There will be free activities, however various stalls/activities will charge small amounts for people to take part (All proceeds go towards LGBT Health and Wellbeing).
