February 2022 marks LGBTQ+ History Month, a time when many of us reflect of queer history and the achievements of key figures within the community who have promoted rights and acceptance. To mark the occasion, Everyman Cinema has unveiled an exhibition and charity gala.

Everyman Celebrates LGBTQ+ History Month with Exhibition & Gala

Throughout LGBTQ+ History Month, entertainment frontrunner Everyman Cinema has used its King’s Cross venue to showcase an exhibition of LGBTQ+ artworks from artists of all backgrounds. The finale, which takes place tomorrow, will see the artworks auctioned off in a charity gala event – with proceeds aiding the largest LGBTQ+ rights organisation in Europe, Stonewall.

The exhibition, which features 11 artworks donated by members and allies of the LGBTQ+ community, includes contributions from the likes of TV personality Gok Wan, transgender artist Veronica Johnson and queer artist Betsy Falco. Many of the artists taking part in the exhibition are represented by Illo Agency, which works to connect progressive brands with diverse talent in order to promote good causes.

Closing on 24 February 2022, the exhibition will followed by a gala event, where guests will be invited to enjoy the exhibition, watch a special screening of Matthew Warchus’s 2014 film Pride and then make online bids on the artworks from the show. Proceeds from the event will go to Stonewall, an LGBTQ+ rights charity that has been active internationally since 1989.
