Skin, lead singer of Skunk Anansie, solo artist, LGBTQ+ activist and all-around trailblazer, will headline this year’s Lambeth council events celebrating LGBTQ+ History Month in February.

The month-long programme is curated and hosted online by Lambeth libraries.

Where else can you find lesbian rom-coms and a Brixton horror movie?

Truth about writers resisting LGBT-Free Zones in Poland today, lawyers ending homophobic legislation in the Caribbean, and 1930s gay MPs warning Britain about Nazism’s rise?

Inspirational autobiography from a stereotype-smashing musical icon and literary fiction and writing of transgressive leather love? LGBTQ+ rights in the British army and the ‘Third Sex’ in early 20th Century Berlin?

Gay detective books and real disabled people’s lives people during Covid-19?

Words and pictures from the archives of Pride, AIDS and more on the borough’s central role in modern LGBTQ+ history and a chance to meet a brand-new LGBT+ community forum for Lambeth… 

Plus, there’s Drag Queen storytime and much more for the kids.

And it’s all free!
