So some people hate pdfs. We get it. That’s totally cool. Pdfs can be annoying. So, we’ve  listened and have pasted in the text of this month’s History Month programme — in its entirety!  Take a look below but don’t expect anything beautiful. Just all the info on each and every wonderful LGBT event going on right now across our two boroughs.  However, you can still download the pdf here if that’s your thing: Camden & Islington LGBT History Month 2016 Brochure.

Welcome to Camden & Islington LGBT History Month 2016
Our 10th contribution focuses on Religion, Belief and Philosophy. But the schedule of events will be as diverse as those attending.
We want to dispel some of the myths around faith within the LGBT community and bring those of faith and no-faith together with all sexualities and gender identities. We won’t shy away from highlighting the barriers and problems between certain elements of religion and identity. Neither will we hesitate to show off the kindred spirits in traditionally disparate communities. Belief is not restricted to people of faith. The programme is packed with events on humanism, spirituality and philosophy.
The intersections between faith, sexuality and gender identity is nothing new. But its past is hidden. The month will illuminate this fact through artefacts, literature, music and film. We hope that you will use this month to meet someone new and start a conversation. And don’t forget to let your hair down with our entertainment and grab yourself a ticket to our closing night gala ‘One Night in Heaven’.

London Irish LGBT Network: Poets, Priests, Druids and Beandraoíthe
The Cauldron, or in Christian terms, the Grail, is a central recurring motif in Celtic Mythology: the vessel is a symbol of the inexhaustible resources of the spirit, forever renewing itself, whether it be the hidden spirit that animates all matter, or, in psychological terms, an energy in the depths of the mind that, if developed, can free us from dependence on the body and the tyranny of historical fact. Introduced by His Excellency the Irish Ambassador and with poetry from Yeats to Heaney to Eaven Boland, together with poets Maureen Duffy and Cat Brogan and others, we will take on a mystical journey, forcing us, like those ancient Celtic faces carved in stone, to look backwards and forwards at the same time as we discover anew that between life and death there is no between.
