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:
