LGBT History Month is Coming!
09.02.2019 – Senedd, Cardiff Bay from 10:00 -16:30
After a record breaking Big Weekend, Pride Cymru are getting ready for an action-packed LGBT History Month event.
This year it is all about how history and activism are linked. There will be talks and panels on how LGBT+ people have built history, and how with this knowledge, we can shape our world today.
Amongst others, Professor Jeffrey Weeks will talk about how he left the Welsh Valleys and helped to start the Gay Liberation Front in London; Lisa Power will talk about founding Stonewall, whose 30th anniversary is in 2019, from the ashes of Section 28; Professor Richard Sandells will talk about the historical erasure and rediscovery of the Dancing Marquess of Anglesey and Shash Appan will discuss trans history in Hindu culture. Other speakers include top Welsh politicians and a diversity of LGBT+ activists.
The event is happening at the Senedd in Cardiff Bay and tickets are free, you just need to register online.
You can check out last year’s event and watch some of the talks on the Pride Cymru Website
Information on how to get to the event and parking facilities are available on the National Assembly for Wales website
