From Politics to Polari: LGB history brought to life by The LGF

Publish Date: 15/04/2013

 

After our maiden event history in February which was held in collaboration with The Devotion Project, we have since confirmed inspirational local activist and historian Paul Fairweather for our April event, the fantabulosa Polari Mission for June, and a lovely meander around Manchester’s LGBT heritage trail in August. Plans are afoot for a BME event in October to mark Black History Month 2013 as well as an event in honour of World Aids Day in December.

As well as the events we have a great team who are currently researching and constructing an interactive online LGB timeline so you can all see just how far the LGB community have come. The timeline will be launched in the summer - so watch this space.
