LGBT History Month and Queer’ists Exhibition

Private View – Saturday 19th February @ 6pm

Coventry LGBT residents are getting together to make History!

Coventry’s LGBT History month celebrations are kicking off with a launch party at Rainbows on the 4th February 2012 from 20:00. Wear sports related clothing to help us celebrate the achievements of LGBT athletes in this Olympic year.

Every year in February around the world Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people celebrate L.G.B.T.History Month. This annual event originally began in the United States in October 1994, and has been commemorated in the United Kingdom throughout the month of February since 2005 ( ).

It provides an opportunity for people to look back over the history of humanity and acknowledge the existence and achievements of the L.G.B.T community despite the attempts that have been made to oppress, obscure or even erase the L.G.B.T element from our history books.

In Coventry it is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of the L.G.B.T community living and working within the City today, as well as raise awareness about their place in the history of the city, and of the world.

During February Queerists by Marta Kochanek – an art exhibition profiling local and international LGBT artists and performers will be shown in the Coventry University Lanchester Gallery and the Glass Box.

Every Tuesday from 19:00 Coventry University’s Cinema will be showing a main LGBT feature film along with some local short films from the 31st January 2012 through to the 28th February 2012.

LGBT History Month and Queer’ists

We are really expanding! Following by Coventry Peace Festival grant we received to develop the idea of the project we were now granted by LGBT History Month!

As a result of such honour The Queer’ists Project will be exhibited in two different places in February 2012. First exhibition of the documentary will be hosted by The Lanchester Library and Coventry University.

Another exhibition planned and supported by LGBT History Month and Coventry City Council will take place in The Glass Box.

You are also all very welcome to join us again in The Glass Box. Our first show of the project we celebrated in The Glass Box during the 1st Annual Queer Art Exhibition in August last year. This time there are three more artists who joined the project so there is chance to meet them all in person. Please do not hesitate to join us and celebrate as it is a very important time to the whole community!

1st Annual QUEER’ists Art Exhibition

From the Founder: “Fear and consciousness of homophobia motivated me to create platform open to emerging as well as established LGBT artists to share life experiences as well as art. Art in this case was to create a solid bridge between artists around the world and myself”.
