In response to Guy's letter (Letters, The Pavement
, 28), about finding a place to meet up with others who are gay and homeless, we drew a blank. However, Helen Ward of Stonewall
provided us with the following contacts, someone of which have been added to The List. Of course, if we come up with new services in future, we'll add those too:
