Peter Scott-Presland, author of “Amiable Warriors, Volume 1: A Space to Breathe, the story of the gay pioneers who founded the Campaign for Homosexual Equality, 1954-1973″ will be in Shrewsbury during IDAHO (International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia), on the 17th May, for a book reading and signing.

Hosted by the Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival, the event will take place at Two Fat Rascals Café, Riverside Precinct, Pride Hill Shopping Centre at 2 – 4pm.

‘If you want to understand how we won LGBT law reform in the UK, read the history…and remember with pride the campaigners who trail-blazed the equal rights we now enjoy.’ Peter Tatchell

‘This wonderful book celebrates those early days of CHE and honours those brave pioneers who weren’t afraid to speak out in the fight for Equality in what were unenlightened times. I’m proud to have been there.” Paul O’Grady

To mark this years International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHO), Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival are screening the documentary "Fagbug" in Shrewsbury.

IDAHO is an annual worldwide event with the aim of raising awareness of LGBT rights violations and stimulate interest in LGBT rights work worldwide. The 17th May commemorates the date when homosexuality was removed from the International Classification of Diseases of the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1990.

Fagbug is a documentary following Erin Davies and her VW Beetle. 
On 18th April 2007, Erin found the words "fag" and "U R gay" spray-painted on her car window and bonet due to her car sporting a rainbow sticker. In response, Erin decided to embrace what happened by leaving the graffiti on her car, putting her studies on hold and embarking upon a video-documented 55,000 mile (89,000 km) journey through 41 U.S. states.

Absolutely nothing to do with the Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival, but a film that was recommended to us and coincidentally is screening at the Old Market Hall.

Showing on Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th April at 20:00.

2014, USA, 100 min
Director: Ira Sachs

Victims of a relentless housing market, newlyweds Ben and George must temporarily live apart until they can find an affordable new home. Struggling with their separation, the couple are further challenged by their new living arrangements in this modern-day love story set against a backdrop of New York City and a delicate Chopin piano score.
