Feb 022014

LGBT History Month 2014 is upon us. We’ll be updating this section regularly to highlight the week’s upcoming event. We have a busy schedule planned throughout February, taking a look at history from every angle – through the many coloured spectrum of the rainbow flag, if you like – and taking in superheroes, secret languages, walks, talks, discos and Beryl Reid in a bowler hat.

What’s the time, Mr Wolfenden?
