Here’s just a smaller taster of what we have to come.
2023 signified the 20th anniversary of the repeal of Section 28, a dark chapter in LGBTQIA+ history that silenced our community’s voices and experiences and made education around LGBTQIA+ heritage, community, and stories illegal. However, even two decades later, our heritage, arts, and literature remain glaringly absent from educational curricula, leaving generations unaware of their own heritage, culture, and stories. In the present day, the landscape is far from welcoming for LGBTQIA+ individuals. Hate crimes targeting transgender people have alarmingly surged, and the UK’s ranking on ILGA Europe’s list of LGBTQ+ inclusive countries has significantly dropped from 1st in 2015 to 17th.
Now, more than ever, we need to act swiftly and decisively to counteract the rising hostility and promote understanding, compassion, and acceptance. Through this project, we aim to educate each other about our rich history, the remarkable artists who shaped it, and the triumphs over discrimination. By coming together, we can inspire future change-makers and foster a sense of empowerment, showcasing the resilience and strength of our community in the face of adversity.
Our project officially launches to the public in February 2024! Be the first to hear about our workshops by signing up today!
