Exhibition For The Homosexual Vicims Of The Holocaust January 27th 2011 In Manchester

Updated on January 4, 2011

Persecution Exhiition

Hello Hubbers

I have not been around for a few months, so I am sorry if I have not said hello.

Earlier this year in August I completed my thesis on the homosexual victms of the holocaust starting in 1930s right through til 1969, this was acknowledged by the lesbian and gay foundation in Manchester and the university of manchester and I was asked to research alot further to create an exhibition.

on January 27th 2011 for the holocaust memorial day we are having an exhibition in the lesbian and gay foundation showing all the research and images that I have collated together showing how the homosexuals became persecuted by the nazis and later imprisoned in concentration camps. We start in the cabaret era in Berlin from 1919 to 1933 all the way to present day showing the camps, the paragraph 175, the fight to repeal it, christopher isherwood, the fall of the berlin wall and the ongoing holocaust that homosexuals are enduring in other countries,.

I have now just finished all the research gathering and soon we shall begin publicising in the UK for the exhibition, The publicity has begun now for the exhibition for mor information please click the links below.

(this link is the information for our exhibition launch, times etc.) 

(this link is for the LGBT short film night we are having on the sunday.)

If any of you do come I do look forward to meeting you all, however it should be on the internet too so will place the link to that here as well when I get that one.

Thanks For Reading and Happy Hubbing.

      Nice to hear from you again calpol125, Australia seems to be a very tolerant and mature country. (generally) The politicians are talking about endorsing same sex marriage (finally) as the vast majority would support it. I really didn't know much about the Nazi's persecution of homosexuals so your paper would be interesting to read. All of my friends are free thinking normalish people (well they're not all perfect) including many who are Lesbian or Homosexual, who My family have had the pleasure to meet. Will we get another dose of your amusing 'I hate' type stuff. If you ever come to melbourne we would gladly organise accommodation and a guided tour. It's sunny here mate. Cheers Keith.

      This is all too true and sad history. I'd love to take in your exhibit, but other circumstances prevail. The holocaust has not really ended for gay people, especially with some of the news that's been surfacing of late. You have done a really important thing in the ongoing struggle for basic human rights, which are now openly denied to everyone in the US and UK. In order to deflect justified rage, proxy targets are set up and far too many fall for the ruse. This is a new and emerging fascism and we have to stop it now.

      This is so, such an important experience in our lifetime that I, and I'm sure, many others are deeply touched at your thoughfulness of bringing this moment in our history to the awareness of the world at large - about time as it is so long overdue - God bless you and keep on keeping on - you ROCK Dude!!!
