Councillor Hannah Bithell, Leeds City Council’s LGBT+ Champion, said: “We are extremely proud to have the opportunity to host another OUTing the Past event, albeit in a totally new format. The event, held during LGBT+ History Month, provides us with an important opportunity to acknowledge some of the many struggles, sacrifices and triumphs of LGBT+ community in Leeds and beyond. We have some fantastic speakers and presentations lined up and it is set to be a great day of celebration for all.”
