Scarborough, Rydale OLGA – Older Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans Association
OLGA is an all-inclusive voluntary group which welcomes anyone of any sexuality or gender nomination. The term ‘trans’ covers all people who may identify themselves as a different gender from their original one. The group plays an active role in the community, provides LGBT awareness training and arranges various social events at a “safe, confidential address”. For more infomation email OLGA, write to them at PO Box 458, Scarborough YO11 9EH, or telephone 0792 946 5044.
OLGA is currently considering setting up a new Ryedale group because of the transport problems in rural areas. If you are interested contact OLGA to let them know what you would want from the group. There will be an open meeting at Ryedale Voluntary Action, Wentworth St, 2-4pm, in the main meeting room. Refreshments will be served.
