Rufus Stone tells the story of being gay and growing older in the British countryside. The film is the principle output of Bournemouth University’s three–year "Gay and Pleasant Land?" research project - a study about positioning, ageing and life stories of older gay and lesbian people. One of a consortium of "Grey and Pleasant Land? Research efforts in the south west and Wales, it is also a part of the national New Dynamic of Ageing programme, funded by Research Councils UK. For more information on the background research and the film’s production, please visit Rufus Stone the movie blog.
The Method Deck, Methods to Diversity – is a learning tool to inspire agencies, practitioners and communities to think about diversity within their ageing population. Methods to Diversity is a playful compendium of information, practical tips and engaging exercises to help agencies and community groups think creatively about their approach to working with older lesbian and gay people. .Funded by the Big Lottery.
