LGBT History Month

LGBT History Month

This February marks LGBT history month, a month long annual observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history and the history of gay rights and other related civil rights movements.

The aim of LGBT history month is to promote equality and diversity for the benefit of the public. This month B3Living is aiming to do exactly this by hosting some events for their residents and staff.

Residents are invited to a showing of the academy award nominated ‘The Danish Girl’ at the Spotlight (formerly known as Broxbourne Civic Hall) in Hoddesdon. The film tells the story of artist Einar Wegener, portrayed by Eddie Redmayne, as he prepares to undergo one of the first sex-change operations. B3Living will be offering free tickets to residents on a first come, first serve basis to all three showing (1pm, 4pm and 7.30pm) on Tuesday 8th March.

In March, we’ll be getting a visit from Isla Holden who is a transgender RAF pilot. She will be attending one of B3Living’s staff briefings, where she will be talking to staff about her journey and being transgender in the RAF.

Every year during LGBT history month B3Living raises the LGBT flag above their offices at Scania House to show their support towards the month and also raise awareness to the local area.

For free tickets or to find out why we do this, please contact our Equalities Manager Catherine Bailey on 01992 453 779 or emailequalities@b3living.org.uk or for more details about The Danish Girl visit TheSpotlight website.
