Two Dalston-based flat mates, Josh and Manuel, are challenging the digital world with KRUSH, a new networking event aimed to encourage people in the LGBT community to do their networking face-to-face.

KRUSH, will launch on Thursday May 12 in the Boudoir of Bar Soho and aims to involve all denominations of the community including lesbian, gay, bi, transgender and gender fluid and will be on at least twice a month with the hope to later expand to hold events in other major cities throughout the UK.

Josh, who was disowned by his family and religious community last year for being gay, says: “It has been a tough year rebuilding my life and the LGBT community has been my support network. I think it’s now time for me to give something back.

“I think life is a journey and this is another phase that enables us to do something we’re passionate about. If you’re part of the community, or curious, come along on your own or with friends and you’ll be made very welcome.”

Manuel adds: “We decided to form the KRUSH network as a way for people in the LGBT community to connect with like-minded people who don’t hide behind chat apps and pretend to be something they’re not.”
