Allah Loves Equality Documentary Screening
Made by a group of Pakistani and Italian activists, this film gives recognition and a voice to LGBTQ+ people living in Pakistan today – many of them Muslim – and explores the history of LGBTQ+ people within the country and within Islam.
Above all, this film exposes incredible hardships and incredible strength, and at its core says that, no matter society’s prejudices, you can be gay and Muslim.
Run by: The University of Huddersfield LGBTQ+ Society
Location: Room OA7/31, Oastler Building, University of Huddersfield
Bona School of Polari Workshop
Presented by Professor Nipper from the Bona School of Polari, this event is a free class in the once widely used secret language language of gay men and the wider LGBTQ+ community, developed in the midst of extreme persecution and prejudice. Expect a unique insight into the socio-cultural influences of this once widely-used parlance and some fantabulosa exercises!
Run by: Kirklees Libraries in association with West Yorkshire Queer Stories
Location: Committee Room, Huddersfield Library

In The Bones Theatre Production
Unable to reconnect the pieces of his life after returning from war, a young, gay soldier commits suicide. Starting at his funeral and spanning years on, this compelling and moving play uses both live action and filmed segments to explore the ongoing (and perhaps never-ending) process of dealing with profound loss through the eyes of his family and his boyfriend.
Run by: Root & Branch Productions
Date: 31/05/2019 and 01/06/2019
Location: The Lawrence Batley Theatre
