Equal Arts Presents
Retro Pride on Tyne Celebration
Sunday 18 July, 2021. 11am - 2pm
Join us for this retro pride event with music, photography, and short films as well as the opportunity to hear some of the podcasts created from the archive interviews.
For the past six months we've been creating a series of podcasts and conversations exploring the history of LGBTQIA+ activism here in the North East.
The cross-generational project has supported students to capture the oral history of those who made the first North East Pride events, fought against discriminatory laws like Section 28 and campaigned for LGBT rights during the 1970s and 80s.
Working with professional photographers and filmmakers, their conversations and portraits will form a digital archive, open for all to delve into for years to come.
