Sue Lister, Real People Theatre‘s Artistic Director, provided a few thoughts on this year’s campaign and the contribution of her organisation.
At last we have set the ball rolling in York for a diverse, lively and informative York LGBT History Month. Congratulations to the organisers and more strength to their arms for future Februaries full of exciting events for everyone to enjoy! Real People Theatre was happy to present Paper Bag People about homophobia in care homes as part of the Authentic You event at York St John University. The more we talk about these issues, the better.
