We may never heal the gap in LGBTQ+ social history that exists across the world, so deeply embedded is their mistreatment in our societies – but we can damn well try to rectify past wrongs. That’s exactly what the film project Opening The Closet Doors, which is screening at Darlington Hippodrome on Thursday 11th August, seeks to do.

In response to a variety of themes, histories and stories, people from the LGBTQ+ community have come together to create their own narratives relating to their own lived experiences. These contributions from artists hailing from a variety of disciplines will feature anything and everything from animation, puppetry, poetry, musical theatre – you name the creative medium, you’ll probably get the creative medium.

This collage of film balances informative with educational, with representation as its main aim and priority. Following its screening, there will be further opportunity to learn and engage with a presentation by the creative minds behind Opening The Closet Door to continue to open up the dialogue. With a Pay What You Can ticket price, BSL interpretation, and a wholly safe space, all are welcome to partake in the unveiling of Darlington’s LGBTQ+ artistic documentary.

Opening The Closet Doors is screened at Darlington Hippodrome on Thursday 11th August.
