Discussion and Short Film: Hear Here - Haringey Vanguard: an exploration of Haringey's role in Section 28 led by Veronica McKenzie
Wednesday 31 October, 7.30pm to 9pm (doors open 7pm).
Haringey Vanguard is one of the new LGBTQ+ initiatives happening in Haringey, which aims to put the ‘gay’ back in Haringey!
It is a Heritage Lottery Funded project, with a particular interest on Black and Minority Ethnic LGBTQ+ heritage in Haringey. You may not know it, but 30 years ago Haringey Council published an important piece of work to promote LGBTQ+ issues within the borough’s educational sector. This progressive manifesto spurred a backlash, which led to the introduction of Section 28.
Come along and find out more about this, a pivotal point in LGBTQ+ history, at our talk, discussion and screening of a short film.
Kindly supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
A Haringey Black History Month event.
