Event description

Description

For LGBT History Month 2018, we're inviting author and good friend to 56 Dean Street, Vernal Scott to join us for a short reading, which will be about our journey in love, sex and relationships. We can then have a hearty community discussion about where we are today with Grindr, porn, self-esteem/damage, and healing/self-love.

This is a free event, but due to limited places, we are asking that places are booked by purchasing an EventBrite ticket. 5.45pm (for a 6pm start), to 7.30pm, Thursday 22nd February, 2018


Below; a quote from Vernal's book "God's Other Children - A London Memoir":

"Our journey as LGBTQ people has often been dangerous and bloody, but also, heroically courageous and rewarding. Our sense of pride was earned fighting for the simple freedom to live and love as we truly are, and that fight continues within our families, places of worship, and the Russias, Jamaicas and Ugandas of the world; the fight to be included and valued, not for our sexuality, but for the character of our hearts and contributions to this awesome but fragile gift called life.

An authentic life path may not be easy, but its challenges and opportunities help to reveal and refine who we were born to be. To deny or stray from it is to initiate a corrosion of the human spirit and life’s potential joys. Fear should never be permitted to dictate our decisions or footsteps; only love, courage and integrity should do that. To come out of the closet is an affirmation of self-love and self-respect. By coming out we are confining our undeserved guilt and shame to the dustbin of history and assert our resolve to live happy dignified lives.

So, in freedom from fear and with pride in our authentic stride, we declare that we are LGBTQ and have good reason to celebrate. Plus, closets are for clothes!

This is OUR month! Vernal x"
