London is an amazingly diverse city and has the highest concentration of LGBT people in the UK. This makes it a great place for Irish LGBT people to call home.
But before you go head first into the midst of all the excitement of Soho and the wildness of Vauxhall you might want to take a step back and think about what you need for a move to London.
Mind Yourself can provide one to one support regarding your health and wellbeing. We can also direct you to specific LGBT services in the city.
