For the next Positive Life group meeting, there will be a screening of a 1997 BBC documentary called ‘It’s Not Unusual: A Lesbian and Gay History – The Age of Innocence’, which is part one of a three part series charting the change in attitudes to homosexuality during the 20th century. This programme looks at the interwar years when homosexuality was driven underground. Nevertheless, many people were sexually active, such as those in the artistic Bloomsbury set. Features an interview with a companion of novelist Radclyffe Hall, plus other testimonies.
Or you can watch the documentary on youtube.
The film will be shown downstairs in the Tom Halford room. You are still more than welcome to come for the evening and just join the others, upstairs in the café area, who prefer the mutual support and social aspect of the evening.
The film run time is 50 minutes, starting 6.30pm prompt, there will then be some dinner for all attending afterwards.
