The Edward Carpenter Community
For men who love men

What we love about ECC

In 2015 we marked 30 years of the Edward Carpenter Community at our Gay Men's Week at Laurieston Hall. During the week we asked men to think about the things that they really valued and loved about the community and their experience on the week, and to post them on a board. Here is a selection of the comments which encapsulate the breadth of things we love about ECC.
