LGBT Camden Forum does History Month in style!

Saturday, January 18, 2014 - 11:45

One of LGBT Consortiums Members have been telling us how the London Boroughs of Camden and Islington are about to host the world’s largest program for LGBT History Month throughout February 2014. The program is put together by Camden LGBT Forum, an independent registered charity supporting victims of hate crime, with the support of Camden and Islington Councils and a team of highly dedicated volunteers.

All the events are part of a Month that celebrates Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans histories and this year’s theme, as announced by LGBT History Month UK back in 2013, is music.

The program has more than 50 events and most of them are free to attend. Highlights will include The Loudest Whispers VI, one of the largest outsider art projects in the UK featuring over 30 new and local LGBT artists. There will be entertainment from films about queer music heritage at the British Museum and you can explore old and new with a concert by Transpose featuring music by Tchaikovsky, a gay man whose heritage is being washed out by powerful figures in Russia. In Islington there will be events dedicated to the life of Magnus Hirschfeld, one of our movement’s founding fathers, then enjoy a discussion on music criticism with one of the world’s top critics, Professor Bryce Morrison. And don’t forget the closing night extravaganza, ‘The Glamour Factory’ at the Camden Centre on the 28th Feb.

Nigel Harris, Acting Director of Camden LGBT Forum said ‘Each year it gets more challenging to beat our previous  success for History Month both in terms of attendance and diversity of events. But with the help of our dedicated volunteers, our partners in Camden and Islington Councils and the most remarkable promotional video done with over 789 hours of volunteer time, we feel that with your help we will get as many people to take part in a month dedicated to celebrating our diverse LGBT heritage as possible.’
