Queer Family - Social History Talk

Queer Family - Social History Talk


What does family mean to you?

Queer families were classed as ‘pretended family relationships’ under Section 28 and denounced as deviant in the mainstream press. Going back to the 1980s we’ll hear from local LGBTIQ+ people who fought to create their own families, on their own terms. We’ll hear about the risks of being a lesbian mum, local DIY self-insemination services and campaigns against Section 28.

Join in the discussion afterwards to have your say on what ‘family’ means to you.

Facilitated by West Yorkshire Queer Stories

Part of Leeds Queer Film Festival 2019

We are committed to making the event affordable for everyone. We use a sliding scale which allows everyone to afford a ticket that is within their financial reach whilst also ensuring the event can continue each year. We ask that you be honest with yourself and your financial situation. If you purchase a ticket at the lowest end of the scale when you could afford the higher ticket prices, it makes it harder for us to provide financial flexibility to those who most need it. Tickets are PAY WHAT YOU CAN between £0 - £9 and are available on the door. This is for a full day’s pass.
