LGBT History Month event at Leeds City Museum
18 Feb 2017 11am - 3pm
Celebrate LGBT History Month at Leeds City Museum with this FREE programme of films, stalls, activities and talks organised by Leeds Queer Film Festival on 18 February 2017 11-3pm. All are welcome to come along and get involved!
A selection of films on LGBT History from our past festivals will be screened and we’ll be having a panel discussion on local LGBT history.
There’ll be stalls of various local LGBT community groups so that you can find out about the great long-running and more recent LGBT support groups, campaigning groups and social groups in our city. This will be a great opportunity to find out about the work they do, how to get involved, support them, or how to get access to services you need.
We’ll also have various activities and workshops so you can tell your own story or just have some fun! They’ll all be on a drop-in basis throughout the day (apart from the filmmaking workshop). Workshops will include:
- LGBT History-themed Zine-In-A-Day with Footprint Workers Co-op
- Make a Thaumatrope (lo-fi animation) with Hannah McCann
- Kendama with Ingi
- Monoprinting with Susie Rumsby (of Leeds Print Workshop)
- Clay Pendant making with Kim Searle (Darn It Workshops)
- Queer DIY Filmmaking workshop
We’ll also be releasing the Leeds Queer Film Festival programme for our 2017 festival (24-26 March) and selling advance weekend passes.
Please check times with event organiser for any last minute changes.
The whole building is accessible and interactives and displays are set at a variety of heights.
