13 December Gateway to Heaven: our history as seen through the lens of oral history, personal stories, and interviews. A talk by Dr Clare Summerskill.

Dr Clare Summerskill will speak to us for 40 mins approximately about our history as seen through the lens of oral history, personal stories gathered from older LGBT people through interviews.

Dr Clare is a seasoned speaker, performer and comedian, so I have no doubt that it will be an interesting evening! She will also bring along some of her publications for sale, if anyone wants to buy some. 

20 December Christmas Party . Tickets available from the committee at the Trinity or online £5. A chance to enjoy a fabulous cabaret and buffet. We have missed our traditional event that has not been possible for several years and look forward to a fantastic evening. The production team are flying in from Cyprus for the event.
