LGBT History MonthFebruary is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans  (LGBT) History Month. This year’s theme is Hidden Histories and Coded Lives. It explores the lives of people like Anne Lister who created a coded set of diaries in the 18th century, the actor Kenneth Williams who used Polari to speak in a coded language which was prolific when homosexuality was outlawed and the artist Frida Kahlo who expressed her bisexuality and disability through her paintings.

Here is a sample of some of our material which covers this theme:
Frida directed by Julie Taymor
Tipping the Velvet directed by Geoffrey Sax
Frida Kahlo by Emma Dexter.
