Five LGBT+ shorts
13 July Tower Hamlets Local History Library and Archives
In partnership with the ELOP (East London Out Project) we showed five short WOFFF films celebrating older LGBT+ women in front of and behind the camera. We also hosted a Q&A with Nuala, the WOFFF director, and two WOFFF film makers, Bonnie Rae Brickman (Editor, BOOTWMN) and Jac Nunns (Director, Female Masculinity Appreciation Society).
Fundraising for LGBT+ Elder charity Opening Doors
Our second Pride screening was a fundraiser, in partnership with Norton Rose Fulbright, for the LGBT+ charity Opening Doors – the largest charity providing support services for older LGBT people in London. We hosted an evening of films by and about older LGBT+ women – the hilarious, older, lesbian comedy Cloudburst and WOFFF short film BOOTWMN.
