Word from the Cabinet
Cllr Sonia Winifred, Cabinet Member for Equalities and Culture, said:
“I’m delighted to invite you to this year’s LGBTQ+ History Month. The theme is: Body, Mind, Spirit
. Lambeth Libraries will host events including Q&As with authors, history talks and reading sessions for all ages that explore the contribution LGBTQ+ people have made to all our lives.
“Lambeth Libraries have co-ordinated this programme to give an insight into LGBTQ+ history, giving us all the opportunity to understand and challenge discrimination and promote equality, diversity and inclusion. The vibrancy of Lambeth is very well reflected in the diversity of our communities and our commitment to equality. I hope you will join us.”
