London Titans FC is one of the UK's most prominent and successful LGBT football clubs.
Based in SW London, the club prides itself on offering a safe and stimulating place for LGBT individuals to play football without fear of homophobia or outdated attitudes. Playing across multiple leagues, at a national and local level, Titans also connect with the wider international footballing community, most recently participating in the 2016 Eurogames in Helsinki, and will be sending two teams to the 2017 Outgames in Miami.
Alongside the football, London Titans FC
is a strong advocate of community connection and charitable donation, holding a dedicated monthly club night, Ball, to raise funds for charities which support and engage with the LGBT community.

London Titans FC's official club partners have also donated a shirt signed by the entire QPR squad, especially for the auction.
For the theatre lover in your life, the auction and raffle will include 2 x tickets to a selection of London's hottest upcoming shows and performers across the West End and queer circuit, including Boys in the Band, F*cking Men, Le Gateau Chocolat and Camp NYE with Scottee.
