Lost History - Of The LGBT

Lesbians, gay men, bisexuals and transsexuals didn’t just arrive from another planet sometime in the 1970s. LGBT people have been part of every culture since time began, though prejudice and ignorance has often suppressed their stories. February is LGBT History Month which redresses the balance by highlighting this hidden history. Highlights include a screening of Living with Pride – Ruth Ellis at 100, a moving documentary about an openly gay African-American woman celebrating her 100th birthday, at Swiss Cottage Central Library.

On 8 February, Andy Bell will take the decks at the Black Cap, Camden, to celebrate the life of the disco star Sylvester, one of the first high profile figures to go public with their HIV status. In Scotland on 14 February there will be a screening of witty documentary The Celluloid Closet at The Filmhouse, Edinburgh; plus special guided tours of the Scottish National Galleries.
