Drawn Out & Painted Pink

This exhibition documents LGBT history from the 1970s to the present day – through cartoons.

It is a retrospective of the work of cartoonists Kate Charlesworth and David Shenton.

Looking at everything from Section 28 to the civil partnerships of the new millennium, this is a living history of the last three decades of gay rights activism.

The exhibition features guided tours by the artists and Q&As.

The Drill Hall, London, £3 Until 28 February

FIT: The Movie

This is a feature-length film adaptation of Stonewall’s play about homophobic bullying.

Designed for teachers to show in schools, it challenges children to think about the language they use and the effect it can have on others.

Kids often call everything from trainers to not liking sport “gay” without stopping to think of the effect it can have.

The film follows six young people as they struggle with their hormones and feelings and attempt to fit in, stand out and discover their own identities.

DVDs of the film will be sent out to every secondary school in Britain by the end of February, together with a teaching pack.
