Norena Shopland | Aberration: Forbidden Lives

Aberration Presents Forbidden Lives for LGBT History Month in Aberystwyth Arts Centre Studio.  Join us for an evening of short talks and performances about the hidden histories of LGBT people in Wales (and a corner or two of England).  This fun and informative evening about lesbian, gay, bi and trans lives is part of LGBT History Month UK. It will include the Mid Wales launch of historian Norena Shopland’s new book, Forbidden Lives (Seren 2017) and an appearance by the Ladies of Llangollen. Plus a few surprises!  Norena's book is  a fascinating and thoroughly researched collection of true stories about the people who came before us in LGBT Wales. Norena will tell us how she decided who to include in the book as well as discussing the difficulties she faced with this groundbreaking project. Also appearing with talks, readings, film and performances are: Tom Marshman, Mike Parker, Glitter Cymru, Jane Hoy & Helen Sandler. All are welcome.  Tickets: £10/£8.
