Wimbledon To Help Mark LGBT History Month

Several SW19 events to mark worldwide initiative

Wimbledon is to host some of the events that Merton LGBT+ Forum is organising for LGBT History Month in February, and they are inviting residents to take part.

It is held worldwide to celebrate lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender history, and the history of gay rights and civil rights movements.

This year’s theme is Citizenship, PSHE and Law to honour the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of male homosexuality in England and Wales.

On Wednesday 15 February, join the team at the Endeavour Club, Martin Way, Morden, from 1pm to 3pm. There will be a Coffee Group for the over fifties on the first floor. There will be a guest speaker called John Morrill from Voicing Views to give a talk on LGBT Mental Health. An LGBT History Party is being planned for 17 February from 7pm to 10pm at the same venue.

The Civic Centre in Morden and Wimbledon Library will host stalls with information on LGBT History Month in February.

The Forum also has free tickets for the screening of Victim at the HMV Curzon cinema in Wimbledon. Get in touch with them via the website mertonlgbtforum.org.uk or email info@mertonlgbtforum.org.uk to get tickets.
