Forty Years Out (And Counting)
 
 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Join Rose Collis to explore and discuss more than forty years of history, featuring cuttings, photos, objects and ephemera

Rose Collis has been an out and proud lesbian writer, performer, historian and activist for more than four decades. She has witnessed, participated in and chronicled many key events in LGBTQ history, but especially those affecting and emanating from the lesbian community.

This history includes Gay’s the Word’s battle with HM Customs, the roles played by Oval House and The Drill Hall in performance/activism, and the diverse responses to the AIDS crisis and Section 28 – plus her four years as the first lesbian co-editor of the influential ‘Out in the City’ section of City Limits magazine.

Join her for this rare opportunity to explore and discuss more than forty years of history, featuring cuttings, photos, objects and ephemera from her private archive.
