This weekend is a lively one for the Pride in Our Past team

To continue the 30s theme began at our launch event on the 1st July, 2011, we’re collaborating with Hawkins Meeting House to put on a very special showing of the iconic “Wizard of Oz”. . one of the most popular films of that decade and the beginning of Judy Garland’s rise to becoming a gay idol.

“Karaoke with a Twister” will give us all a chance to enjoy the film in a whole new light as it’s presented in a sing along style so we can can all follow the yellow brick road in harmony together. Fancy dress is actively encouraged with themed prizes for the best costume and singer.

The following day, Sat 23rd will find the team at the Guildhall, manning a stall at the “Archives from the Attic” event where visitors get the opportunity to discuss Plymouth’s history with experts and bring along items of memorabilia which they think may be of interest. We’re hoping to meet with members of Plymouth’s LGBT community and help them contribute pieces of their own past to both the city’s LGBT archive and, perhaps, even for inclusion in the Pride in Our Past exhibition which is happening in the museum next year, between dates of April 28th and June 30th 2012.

It will be great to meet as many of you as possible, at either or both events, so please come along and show your support for this exciting project.
