Love Is Not Cancelled 2020 Campaign - T-shirt by Little Gay Brother

Little Gay Brother & Opening Doors London teamed up to shine a light on how the pandemic is affecting vulnerable members of the LGBTQ+ over 50s community and raise much needed funds to support their most marginalised members in crisis.

"At the beginning of the pandemic, we raised 10k in funds to help set up a telephone befriending service for Opening Doors London. It was so successful, ODL were able to help people from all over the UK. The support we received was amazing, with huge names across music, film and comedy shouting about our efforts.” - Clayton Wright, founder of Little Gay Brother

“Love Is Not Cancelled” supporters include Pose star Billy Porter, DJs Fat Tony, Eats Everything, Annie Mac, Jodie Harsh, DJ Paulette, Patrick Topping, BBC Jaguar, Dr James the Vet, The Sex Dr Karen Gurney, Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall, comedian Jayde Adams, Suzi Ruffell, activist Munroe Bergdorf, and musicians Olly Alexander from Years & Years/It’s A Sin and the Pet Shop Boys amongst many others.
