We invite you to the online theme launch for LGBT+ History Month 2023: #BehindTheLens

At 6.30pm (GMT) on Thursday 24th November we will be beaming to you live from the Cinema Museum in London.  Please register here: www.eventbrite.com

We are joined by the co-founder of LGBT+ History Month Professor Emeritus Sue Sanders and Stuart Milk from the Harvey Milk Foundation, alongside a panel of experts, including Maggie Nicholls, Ash Kotak, Rainer Schulz and Bonnie Greer, who will introduce the theme and faces for 2023.

The LGBT+ History Month 2023 theme celebrates LGBT+ peoples’ contribution to cinema and film from behind the lens. Directors, cinematographers, screenwriters, producers, animators, costume designers, special effects, make-up artists, lighting directors, musicians, choreographers and beyond. At a time when LGBT+ lives are in the media, we also encourage you to look ‘Behind the Lens’ and listen to LGBT+ peoples’ lived experiences.

 

LGBT+ History Month (#LGBTplusHM) Is celebrated every February across the UK, and was founded in 2004 by Schools OUT co-chairs, Paul Patrick & Professor Emeritus Sue Sanders. It was first celebrated in February 2005.

Every year Schools OUT sets a different theme for LGBT+ History Month and provides free resources for education settings, businesses, services and organisations to help them celebrate and #usualise LGBT+ lives in their full diversity.
