The 2019 programme is dedicated to ‘LGBT+ Solidarity: Past and Present’. It features speakers from the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, US, Sweden, Italy, Israel, and Norway. Workshops include: Making and Presenting LGBT+ Films, The Future of LGBT+ History in the UK, and discussion with the CEO and Research Director of the Queer Britain museum project.
