G-A-Y And Heaven Nightclub Plant A Tree To Support LGBTQ+ Runners26.05.2023
G-A-Y and Heaven Nightclub collaborate with London Landmarks Half Marathon and Westminster City Council, to plant a tree in Victoria Embankment Gardens, to support LGBTQ+ runners.
In a heartwarming display of support for the LGBTQ+ community, renowned London nightclubs G-A-Y and Heaven Nightclub, joined hands to plant a tree in Victoria Embankment Gardens earlier this May.
The initiative was part of the Queen’s Green Canopy, a nationwide initiative created to celebrate the Platinum Jubilee. Following the wishes of our Patron, His Majesty The King, The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) initiative has been extended to the end of March 2023 to give people the opportunity to plant trees in memoriam to honour Her Majesty.
The tree planting ceremony held significant meaning, not only because it contributed to the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative but also because it was a tribute to the LGBTQ+ runners participating in the annual London Landmarks Half Marathon (LLHM). The LLHM route passes by Victoria Embankment Gardens, making it an ideal location to commemorate the strength and diversity of the LGBTQ+ community.
G-A-Y and Heaven Nightclub, both iconic fixtures of London’s vibrant nightlife scene, have long been advocates for LGBTQ+ rights and inclusivity. By coming together for this meaningful event, they aimed to promote unity, acceptance, and environmental consciousness within the community they serve.
The Queen’s Green Canopy initiative encourages communities, businesses, schools, and individuals to plant trees to create a legacy of green spaces and enhance the natural environment across the country.
