LGBT History Month Event 2013
This free film night was attended by about 50 people who watched three films and heard presentations from the older storytellers of the group. The three films were the Colonels Outing, If these Walls could Talk 2 and Transvisions which was a Trans documentary made in Edinburgh. The feedback for the evening was positive and the group are grateful to Eden Court for all their support and to Highland Council for the Funding.
Highland Council Quality Awards
The Employee Development Team at Highland Council have been working with Highland Rainbow Folk for over a year and due to this were nominated for an Internal Quality Award.
The group participated in the selection process for this award, including a presentation to judges. Two members attended the formal award ceremony in November 2011. We were delighted when the Team won the award in their catagory and the members of Highland Rainbow Folk who attended had a wonderful evening at the Town house in Inverness.
This recognition of the partnership working between the group and Highland Council is motivating and the work continues to be highly acclaimed by all those attending the presentations.
LGBT History Month Event at Eden Court
Wednesday 22nd February 2012 saw members of Highland Rainbow Folk hosting a film event to celebrate History Month. Funding from Highland Council and LGBT History Month and support from Eden Court meant we could show three LGBT related films interspersed with personal stories.
An information stall in the foyer allowed us to share our celebration with other film goers and raised the visibility of History Month and the work of Highland Rainbow Folk .
This free event was a great success with over fifty people attending and very positive feedback. Being visible and and hoping to increase understanding is the root of the work of Highland Rainbow Folk and we look forward to next years History Month in order to have another public event with this aim in mind.
