Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Southwark/Lambeth branch of the Campaign for Homosexual Equality (CHE) was formed in August 1976. The branch was partly intended as a campaign group but also a social group. The group dissolved in 1980, and its members either joined the national CHE or the Lewisham branch.

This archive was donated to London Metropolitan Archives by Jeff Doorn, former convenor of the Southwark and Lambeth branch. Jeff Doorn joined the Campaign for Homosexual Equality in 1976 and became a founder member of the Southwark Lambeth Area Gay Society (SLAGS) which developed into the Southwark/Lambeth CHE. He produced many of the newsletters and was a member of the committee until the branch was dissolved.

Content
