The Wound

An intimate and boldly transgressive film by South African director John Trengove, charting a young teen's initiation ritual in a remote mountain retreat off the Eastern Cape. Featuring a terrific debut from openly gay musician Nakhane Touré, better known in his native South Africa as a successful singer-songwriter, The Wound is a thought-provoking exploration of manhood as reflected through the prism of African Culture.

Croydon Pridefest

The festival this year will be in Wandle Park. Those taking part in the Pridefest March will assemble in High Street, close to the entrance to the St George's Walk arcade from 11.30 am. The march will proceed from there to the main Pridefest site in Wandle Park. More details have yet to be announced.

TALK: Merrick Badger - The Troubled Life of Peter Wells

Sanderstead's gay rights campaigner Peter Wells was 26, his partner was 18. Because this was 1974 when the gay age of consent was 21, he was sentenced to two and a half years in jail. Scandal engulfed his partner, too. From his cell, Wells launched the first European Court of Human Rights challenge to the discrimination in the different ages of consent. The case was pioneering stuff, needing several more cases building on his work to finally get success in the late 1990s..He played a key role in creating a path to legal equality for LGBT people, yet his story is almost unknown.
