The Queer Spaces Network was established following a round-table meeting of LGBTQI+ (queer) community members affected by the spate of venue closures in London at the Greater London Authority in December 2015.

The QSN was established as an open and inclusive forum for members of the queer community to come together and discuss issues relating to the protecting, promoting and supporting queer spaces in London and feed into relevant consultations and requests for information.

The group has since met quarterly and its members have fed into several consultation events from the GLA and other groups.
