What If large events are not for me?
There’s plenty of other ways to get involved and Stonewall’s website does detail other activities that are occurring across the year.
However, if you are someone who likes to just relax and watch a few films over the weekend I would recommend the following:
- Pride (2014) – a film about an LGBT group in London who supported the village of Onllwyn during the minor’s strike in 1984.
- Heartstopper (Netflix) – based on the webcomic by Alice Oseman, a coming-of-age story of Charlie Spring, a year 10 who falls for his classmate.
- Carol (2015) – starring Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara about a forbidden affair between an aspiring female photographer and a woman going through a difficult divorce
I hope that the information above provides a small insight into the community that I belong to.
If I can just impart a final message, it would be you don’t have to understand why someone identifies themselves the way they do but just accept and love them for who they are. After all, love is love.
