18th Annual LGBTQ+ Conference: UNORTHODOX

This takes place on December 5th.    


Celebrating its 18th birthday, the LGBTQ+ History Conference is ‘coming of age’, yet it is still grappling with important themes in history and heritage. #UnorthodoxConf

This year explores a variety of topics and themes, including:

  • How to Search LGBTQI+ Historical Records
  • What should go into a Queer British Museum?
  • What are the Missing Voices in LGBTQI+ History?
  • In what way faith, religion, and belief intersect with sexuality, transition(ing), identity and dissent?
  • How can we redress the invisibility, erasure and misconceptions of LGBTQI+ people in general and LGBTQI+ people of faith in particular?

The price is £10 and tickets can be booked on eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/18th-annual-lgbtq-conference-unorthodox-tickets-121540594189?utm_campaign=lgbtq-unorthodox&utm_medium=fb&utm_source=sm&fbclid=IwAR1DDhC9jlO0Pnab3hRfPMoH1FB72Z25k5jm19I0VMVZniNm6-Fk9_NcFF4

This groups is resuming their monthly masses, at 3pm on the second Sunday of each month.  However there is a new, larger location to allow for social distancing.  Masses will be monthly, on the second Sunday of the month.

The new location is  Our Lady’s Church in the York suburb of Acomb. For those travelling by car there is ample parking. The church is at the junction of Gale Lane and Cornlands Road (YO24 3DX). There are a number of busses from the city centre which serve the area. The bus which will bring you closest is the number 4 from the Railway Station, and the stop you will need is “Cornlands Road, Energise”. There is also the number 1 which will bring you from the Railway Station to Acomb Library, which is about a five-minute walk to the church.

Transgender Day of Remembrance Communion Service

Sunday 15th November 2020
6.30pm Zoom

Join us on Sunday 15th November at 6.30pm for a special service in honour of Transgender Day of Remembrance. This year the Revd Dr Tina Beardsley will lead the service and vigil.

Each November Open Table Liverpool dedicates its monthly communion service to Transgender Day of Remembrance (TdoR). This is a day when people all over the world remember those who have been killed as a result of transphobia  and to draw attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community. This is always a special service remembering those killed and recommitting ourselves to creating a just world for all.
