LGBT History Month 2nd February - 8th March

Following the success of last yearís event, Silver Rainbows in partnership with Weaver Hall Museum and Cheshire Archives and Local Studies are hosting a number of events celebrating LGBT History Month.

The focus of this yearís exhibition is the 1980s onwards, charting the remarkable changes in the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people over the last three decades. Looking at the huge impact of the AIDS crisis and damaging legislation such as Section 28 from a Cheshire perspective. You will be able to hear real stories of how prejudice and discrimination impacted on peopleís lives and how the LGBT communities responded.

To celebrate the distance travelled since the 1980s we will be screening a range of films in the Regalette, a 40 seater cinema housed within Weaver Hall Museum. The month will finish in style with a Silent Disco featuring dance floor fillers from across the decades.
