LGBT History Month: Film Screening - The Marching Season

In 2006, in the new and supposedly democratic EU state of Latvia, the Gay Pride parade was banned. In 2007, the organisers persevere and this 'fly-on-the-wall' documentary charts the events surrounding Latvia's first officially sanctioned Latvian Gay Pride parade in Riga. This fascinating exposé reveals how members of the LGBT group Mozaika organise the event despite escalating threats from religious fundamentalists and the curiously-named neo-Nazi homophobic 'No pride' organisation. The film juxtaposes the Riga parade with coverage of the 2007 London Pride drawing parallels with the fight for LGBT rights in 60's and 70's Britain. The film will be followed by a Q&A session with the director.
