Real-to-Real: Personal tales from the LGBT Community

A City Seen as part of LGBT History Month

Exploring the creativity of some of Manchester’s newest voices, and working in partnership with Superbia, and LGBT Foundation, we will be showcasing brand new short films examining issues such as HIV/Aids, aging in the LGBT ‘community’, the emotional effects of transitioning, and queer, black masculinities.

Using film as a space to share the unknown, these may be personal tales, but they are ours!  Followed by a Q&A with all four film makers, Rachel Ishmael, Sophie Broadgate, Jordan Roberts and Anna Raczynski along with Eliyana Evans, writer of ‘Do You Understand What is in Your Blood’, Lawrie Roberts of LGBT Foundation and Greg Thorpe of Superbia.

This is a celebration of who we are, a sharing of our stories and a welcome space to explore the potential of film to do this. Please come and join in the creativity and conversation.

This event is on a pay what you can basis with options of free tickets, £1, £5, £10 and £20.

The short films will be available to view online from 19 February with a Q&A taking place at 19.00 on 25 February. Further information on how to access the films and discussion will be shared with you once tickets are booked.
