PRIDE – Film Screening @ Hounslow Civic Centre @ Council Chamber
Feb 15 @ 6:30 pm

PRIDE is inspired by an extraordinary true story set in the summer of 1984 when the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers’ families.

Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person.

As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

Concessions are available at a cost.

All procedes will be donated to the West London LGBT Forum to support Hate Crime work.

Fifty Years Legal – Film Screening @ Hounslow Civic Centre ( With Q&A from Simon Napier-Bell) @ Council Chamber
Feb 18 @ 6:30 pm

This powerful and engaging film was created to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality, showing an engaging but informative journey through LGBT history in the UK since 1967 and how changes in politics and social attitudes, for better or worse, have evolved over the subsequent decades.

It charts both the story of the 50-year battle for equal rights and deeply personal accounts from high profile politicians, comedians, actors and others in the public arena. Leading activists and commentators explore the changes that have taken place since homosexuality was decriminalised in the UK in 1967 and the influence of gay culture on society.

Simon Napier-Bell established a name for himself in the ‘60s as manager of groups such as The Yardbirds, before going on to manage T Rex, Wham! and George Michael, Boney M, Sinitta and Ultravox, among others.

This screening features a Q&A session after the film with Simon Napier-Bell

Beautiful Thing – Film Screening @ Hounslow Civic Centre @ Council Chamber
Feb 22 @ 6:30 pm

Recently named by the British Film Institute as one of the 30 best LGBT movies of all time, the film is written by Jonathan Harvey and directed by Hettie MacDonald. When Jonathan Harvey’s love story Beautiful Thing debuted in 1993 as a play, he had no idea it would eventually be heralded as a crown jewel of gay storytelling. This is a gentle coming-of-age tale of two teenagers—Jamie and Ste—struck a powerful chord among LGBT audiences.

Concessions are available at a cost.

All proceeds will be donated to the West London LGBT Forum to support Hate Crime work
