Meeting at the Black Horse Pub,

Wood Street

High Barnet



Each month on 1  or 2 weekday evenings

We meet at other venues for special events. All venues are chosen by our members.


Barnet LGBTI is a society of men and women of all ages over 18. We welcome those who identify as, or support, any part of the LGBTI community. We meet as a social group for a pint or glass of choice in a pub because it is a social centre, busy and welcoming. The Black Horse is our local.


Formed in High Barnet circa 1980 - the society has varied in membership numbers but has always maintained a presence - whether in The Olde Mitre, the Old Bull, the George, or many other pubs and Barnet meeting rooms - some no longer open.


Barnet is the Central town for gay people who are Lesbian, Gay men, Bisexual, Transgendered, Intersex - whether from Barnet, North London generally, Totteridge, Finchley, Whetstone, Edgware, Stanmore, Enfield, Potters Bar, Southgate, Elstree, Borehamwood, Hendon, Mill Hill, and South Hertfordshire. 


The number of gay people living in this area is enormous and we are the local GAY GROUP for everyone.


A continued presence via email membership facilitates regular meets at this venue or anywhere, welcoming new people, sharing ideas, arranging visits, holding BBQs etc in Barnet and nearby. Our Members set our programme so please register and influence what we do.


We are always growing our membership number and we welcome new members of all ages over 18 including students - at any time of the year. Former friends and members are also returning and are welcomed back.

Record of Meets


In 2018 we moved to 2 meets per month as requested by members. Our best day of the week remains Thursday but a Tuesday or Wednesday is sometimes preferred.


We didn't meet during the Pandemic

Other Venues


As we are a social group and want to talk about a wide range of topics, we usually avoid venues with loud music. Weekend meets were not selected recently but could be in future.
