Good Things Come To Those Who Bake

In 2017, we have been celebrating the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK. This culminated in the summer with LGBT 50, a week-long programme of expression and togetherness here in Hull. But our quest for equality and support for the LGBT+ community doesn’t end there.

As part of our Make It Happen campaign we met six incredible people who, in their own lives, through family ties or in their career, have a special connection to the LGBT+ community. Everybody’s LGBT+ journey is unique, but by coming together and sharing their stories with us, these six individuals are starting a conversation that we all need to take part in.

If you’d like any further support or advice about the issues in this film, these are just a few of the organisations who would love to hear from you:

– The Warren Youth Project SHOUT Group

 University of Hull Student Union LGBT+ Group

– LGBT Christian Fellowship

– Transcendence

– Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (FFLAG)

– Age UK

– Yorkshire MESMAC

– Hull & East Yorkshire MIND
