Haringey is an outer London Borough, in north London. It was formed in 1965 by amalgamating the former boroughs of Hornsey, Wood Green, and Tottenham. "Haringey" is a variant form of "Harringay" which is the name of a locality within the borough.

LGBT history

There was a Haringey CHE Group in the 1970s.

The Rainbow Rooms, Manor House, Seven Sisters Road (just in the Borough of Haringey) had a gay disco in the 1970s.

'The “Rainbow” was hired by a guy called Bill Wallis and the DJ was called Nicky Price who went on to run Bolts in Green Lanes, after being forced out of the Manor House pub. Bill Wallis moved the disco to a pub called The Fox in Green Lanes. The “Rainbow” was the first club I went to in early 1977 the assistant manager was called Gordon' (comments by Michael 2019)

Lynne Featherstone (named as a "Non-LGBT Friend" in the Pink List 2011) is MP for Hornsey and Wood Green.

Haringey LGBT Network (also referred to as "Haringey LGBT Forum") is managed by Wise Thoughts.[1][2]
