We also marked the recent Royal Pardon for Alan Turing with an extra poster:
The BBC article linked at the foot of the poster itself includes a link to the petition demanding a pardon for the estimated 49,000 gay men convicted under the same legislation as Turing.


Sutton LGBT Forum has a 12 day guest pass for a local Nuffield Health gym (worth over £100) to give to the person who can answer five questions based on the exhibition posters. The questions are here:

In celebration of LGBT History Month, Sutton LGBT Forum asked me to prepare some exhibition posters for display in all the libraries of the London Borough of Sutton.

For details of the location and opening times of Sutton's libraries:

Doing my best to cover the LGBT range of interests, and with the help of Sutton LGBT Forum board member Louise Kelly, I produced these five sets of posters:

L - Behind Secret Doors

G - The Pink Triangle

G - The Lost Language of Polari

B - Bi Screen Goddesses

T - Roberta Cowell

Please feel free to use them (or not), if you wish.

These posters will be exhibited in Sutton's libraries throughout February, accompanied by a selection of books either by LGBT authors or on LGBT subjects.

I have heard that Farnham Library has put on a small exhibition too.
