Good Things Come To Those Who Bake

Six layers, six stories and six lives collide to make a difference to the LGBT+ community. Now it’s your turn.

In 2017, we have been celebrating the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK. This culminated in the summer with LGBT 50, a week-long programme of expression and togetherness here in Hull. But our quest for equality and support for the LGBT+ community doesn’t end there.

As part of our Make It Happen campaign we met six incredible people who, in their own lives, through family ties or in their career, have a special connection to the LGBT+ community. Everybody’s LGBT+ journey is unique, but by coming together and sharing their stories with us, these six individuals are starting a conversation that we all need to take part in.

If you’d like any further support or advice about the issues in this film, these are just a few of the organisations who would love to hear from you:

– The Warren Youth Project SHOUT Group

 University of Hull Student Union LGBT+ Group

– LGBT Christian Fellowship

– Transcendence

– Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (FFLAG)

– Age UK

– Yorkshire MESMAC

– Hull & East Yorkshire MIND

– Let’s Talk Hull

Discover more about our Make It Happen campaign and see how small changes can make a huge difference to your health and wellbeing during Hull 2017 and beyond.
