In 2016 LGBT History Month aims to focus on religion and sexuality.
Tony Fenwick, CEO of Schools OUT UK, who founded LGBT History Month, said,
“We always focus on a specific curriculum area for LGBT History Month. Thus far we’ve done sport, STEM, music and history. This year we’re dipping our toes in the hot water with religion, belief and philosophy.
“We know there is conflict between the mainstream religions and LGBT people and we also know that many LGBT people have a faith. We need to support all LGBT people and we believe we can do this through constructive dialogue”.
Cucumber’s Cyril Niri will present the evening’s event, supported by Cambridge City Council, on the 26th November whilst Labi Siffre and Mark Jennet will provide the entertainment at the evening of talks and entertainment.
Tony Fenwick added,
“Cambridge came to us and we are thrilled to be hosting our annual showcase at one of the University’s finest and most central colleges. Queens’ is Stephen Fry’s alma mater and its environs provide buildings of enormous splendour and historic importance that can house some of our events, while the daytime workshops and evening presentations can be housed in the fully-equipped modern buildings on the other side of the Mathematical Bridge”.
