Pride Week 2011: I Am Pride
I Am Pride! was the theme for this year's Pride Week which was celebrated between the 4th and 13th of July 2011. The activities featured an LGBT Film Festival screening BearCity, My Friend from Faro and The Secret Diaries of Anne Lister. Messages from President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and Archbishop Gene Robinson delivered as part of the It Gets Better Campaign were shown before each film. Other events included WomenSpace, the Pride March and a Seminar on the Legal Recognition of Same Sex Couples organised in collaboration with the US Embassy.
I Am Pride! was a recognition of the progress that LGBT individuals have made in acknowledging and celebrating their diverse identities and a celebration of MGRM’s 10thanniversary
