5:00pm Tuesday 29th January 2013 in News
The history of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in Croydon will be celebrated with a month long event in February.
Groups including Croydon Area Gay Society, Croydon Trans Group and Insight, are working alongside Croydon Council to stage a series of events across the borough, during LGBT History Month.
The events aim to raise awareness and celebrate the LGBT contribution to the community.
The programme of events include the launch on February 5 in Braithwaite Hall, which will feature performances by students from the BRIT School and Croydon College.
Other events include an LGBT history trail in the Museum of Croydon, Rainbow Reading Group and two exhibitions in Central Library.
Croydon's fostering team will also be offering information and advice at the central London LGBT History event on March 8.
Councillor Sara Bashford said: "In order to celebrate the past and present LGBT community, we’re running a series of events throughout February, not just for the LGBT community, but so that everybody in Croydon can experience this unique history."
