This year marks #50years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK. You probably already know that, but what you might not know is that we’ve teamed up with some very special folks to bring you a night of LGBT+ celebration. The Sexual Offences Act came into force on 27th July 1967, and so on Friday 28th July, we’re proud to present a very special night of LGBT+ goodness as part of our year-long celebrations.
First up, starting at 7pm sharp is LGB-QWERTY, hosted at the QUAD, and partnership with Twisted Tounges and Furthest from the Sea, it promises to be a veritable vocal banquet of six poets and spoken word artists who have been commissioned to write new works on what LGBT+ life is like now. Come join the fabulous compere Dan Webber, volunteers and staff from Derbyshire LGBT+ in reflecting on the aspects and experiences of LGBT+ life.
Following our spoken word feast, QUAD are showing Victim (1961) a film seminal in changing the UK law. QUAD are offering a discount on your tickets, just quote ‘LGBTPLUS’ when booking in person or over the phone. The film starts at 8.30pm, and will be introduced beforehand by Ian Robson, CEO of Derbyshire LGBT+. To book tickets, just call 01332 290606
