Exmouth marks LGBT+ History Month with film screenings of ‘impactful movies’

Specially-chosen films described as ‘impactful movies’ will be shown at Exmouth Library in February to mark LGBT+ History Month.

Sweetheart (2021), rated 15, being shown at 4pm on Friday, February 18, is described as a ‘charming coming-of-age story’ about environmentally-conscious teenager AJ, who falls in love with a lifeguard (Isla) on an otherwise unbearable family holiday.

Pride (2014), also rated 15, being shown on the same day, starting at 7pm, is portrayed as a historical comedic drama telling the true story of LGBT activists that raised money for families affected by the British miners’ strike in 1984.

Tickets are £5 to see one film or £6 to attend both screenings.

The town’s library is showing the films as part of a programme of events organised by Exmouth Pride as part of LGBT+ History Month, held annually in February.

Hannah Cooper, library first assistant said “We are delighted to be hosting two more films this year to coincide with LGBT+ history month.

“We worked closely with Exmouth Pride to choose two impactful movies that people can come along and watch together at the library.

“There will be a warm welcome and light refreshments available.”

Al Brown, Exmouth Pride spokesperson, said: “2022 sees the 50th anniversary of the first Pride march in the UK, campaigning for equal rights.

“This film celebrates the sense of community that Pride events can help build. Here in Exmouth we are still building on that legacy.”
