Last Friday we gathered in Ladbroke Grove at the Museum of Brands to unveil the capitals latest Rainbow Plaque dedicated to the London Lighthouse. 

 We were delighted that one of the London Lighthouse Co-Founders, Christopher Spence, did the honours alongside the buildings architect, Robert Sproson in front of a crowd of former London Lighthouse staff, service users, volunteers and those working in the HIV sector today with some notable political guests. 

"Wandsworth Oasis is extremely proud to sponsor this London Lighthouse Rainbow Plaque, remembering those who spearheaded a pioneering approach to caring for people living with HIV/AIDS while challenging the discriminatory attitudes them. We will continue our work and support for our HIV community and the drive for no new diagnoses of HIV by 2030." Christine Ansell - CEO Wandsworth Oasis 

Rainbow Plaques are a symbol of the enormous contribution that our LGBTQIA+ communities make to our capital and I’m delighted that this new plaque in Ladbroke Grove honours the ground-breaking support provided by London Lighthouse for people living with HIV and AIDS. Inclusion and diversity are at the heart of London’s values, and it is important that we remember how far we have come but also how much more we need to do to celebrate all our different communities, as we build a fairer and better London for everyone.” The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.
