October is Black History Month in the UK.
During October 2013 Rainbows Across Borders promoted an exhibition in Croydon Library commemorating the achievements of Black LGBT people, and the problems that LGBT people face in many Commonwealth countries.
For Black History Month 2012, CAGS has arranged for Ted Brown, veteran black gay activist, to speak on 2nd October. For details of the event see www.lgbt-croydon.org.uk/TedBrown. See also the CAGS press releases at www.cags.org.uk/pressrel-2012-06.html and www.cags.org.uk/pressrel-2012-07.htm.
Croydon Area Gay Society (CAGS) organised a number of events in Croydon during October 2010 to celebrate the lives of Black LGBT people, as part of Croydon Council's “Croydon Celebrates Black History” programme.
