    PROUD Experiences is so much more than matchmaking. On top of your appointment diary, you’ll be invited to a host of after-hours affairs. Our education sessions will open minds to the realities of LGBTQ+ travel, initiating in-depth conversations on the resilient market. Our networking events will synchronise good friends, good music and good business in some of London's most creative spaces.
