LGBT History Month 2017 Tasters

Posted on: February 15, 2017

Danish Girl and Carol DVDsFebruary is Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans (LGBT) History Month. This year marks 50 years since the 1967 Sexual Offences Act which partly decriminalised homosexuality in men. This had an impact on all of the LGBT community around the world.

We’ve just added these new DVDs to our catalogue for you to borrow:

The Danish Girl

Carol

Both films were nominated for Oscars last year; Eddie Redmayne (Actor in a Leading Role) with Alicia Vikander (Actress in a Supporting Role) and Cate Blanchett (Actress in a Leading Role) with Rooney Mara (Actress in a Supporting Role).  Alicia Vikander won Actress in a Supporting Role. This year’s Oscar nominees include Moonlight which is up for Best Picture and Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris for Actor in a Supporting Role. Find out more about Moonlight on the official website.

If you didn’t catch Desert Island Discs on 10 Feb you can listen to Rugby Union referee Nigel Owens talking movingly about his sexuality and how he came out in 2007 on the BBC iPlayer.
