OCTOBER

4 October Social Media – friend or foe

A group discussion moderated by Gerry. What social media do you like to use? What do you think are the good points and the bad points about social media today? We will have a panel of 4 members who are willing to talk for 2 to 3 minutes about their views on benefits and risks of social media, and we’ll have a friendly discussion based on the brief talks. Please let us know if you would like to be on our panel of speakers.

11 October Black History month – a chance to see and learn about the long and varied history. Hosted by Malcolm

18 October Zoom and quiz hosted by Roger and Malcolm from Cyprus (for those of us that remember – just like Family favourites on Sunday lunchtime)

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.
