Some of our lovely books and DVD’s – find more on our display in the library throughout June.
- Marking Pride month, Birds’ Eye View presents Queerious : Marking Pride month, Birds’ Eye View presents Queerious – inviting you to get curious and explore a multitude of desires on screen in ways all too rarely seen in cinema. Through stories of sexual awakenings and re-awakenings, and queer love through a feminist lens, this curated season from Birds’ Eye View aims to help us to question, learn and enjoy our sexual selves.
- BFI Flare LGBTQIA+ : Here are the pioneers, the iconoclasts, the brave – from landmark LGBTQIA+ portraits to the next generation of queer classics from the BFI Flare festival.
- Colors of Tobi :A mesmerising portrait of a family grappling with teenage gender dysphoria, this uplifting documentary exudes the defiant message that love is all you need.
- Pop, Pride and Prejudice: Documentary which tells the story of the vital role played by popular music in a social, sexual and cultural revolution. While politicians and protestors focused on social change and legal reform, another struggle was going on: the battle for hearts and minds. This was about more than sex. It was about identity, culture and lifestyle. And the fight to win mainstream status for queer culture was waged, and won, by a group of pioneers, such as Dusty Springfield, David Bowie and George Michael, who used popular music as the stage for a revolution.
- Prejudice and Pride: The People’s History of LGBTQ Britain: Ordinary people share the objects that have helped define their lives since homosexuality was decriminalised, including a rare collection of the first openly gay magazine.
