Make History Now!
LGBT Tower Hamlets Photography Competition

ELOP and the London Borough of Tower Hamlets are launching a brand new photography competition and everyone is invited! Submit your photographs of LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) life in the borough of Tower Hamlets – help to capture for posterity the many different people and places that make up the LGBT East End as it is today.

Every photograph submitted will be added to the heritage collections at Tower Hamlets Local History Library & Archives, and the best will be exhibited here during summer 2017.

Details of how to enter the competition, and the prizes available, will be revealed at this free launch event – which will also feature refreshments and a performance by poet Dean Atta, a WriteIdea festival favourite who has been described as “one of the UK’s finest poets” and “the Gil Scott-Heron of his generation”.

It will also be a chance to learn more about Tower Hamlets LGBT Community Forum.

This event is free, no advance booking is required. All welcome!
