With films spanning from 1909 to 1994, LGBT Britain on Film is a collection of archive material documenting a century in which homosexuality went from crime to Pride, via decades of profoundly courageous activism, and the shifting attitudes to LGBT people and their rights across the board throughout a time of explosive social change. It’s a moving and fascinating collection, a social document encompassing both the collective public fight for basic rights and equality and more personal, intimate and psychological ones: the shedding of shame and the ability to be open about one’s most private self; the claiming of the right to love and to say publicly, proudly: this is who I am.
Cine-Sister puts on film screenings and workshops and aims to give a voice and a platform to a diverse range of people with amazing stories to tell.
