The Point and Eastleigh Pride are collaborating on:

A Gay Ol’ Time’, an exhibition and collection of stories from local LGBTQ+ residents

The Point, Eastleigh are running FREE intergenerational workshops to bring people together, share experiences, and explore the joys and the hurdles of the last 70 years, which represent an incredibly significant period for LGBTQ+ people.

The tales and thoughts you share will form an exhibition, opening in time for Eastleigh Pride on 10th September.

Join the summer sessions, all lead by local queer and neurodiverse artist Amber Weyman:

Saturday 23 July 2-4pm, The Point, Eastleigh
Social Sharing Workshop, 16+

Help creatively map out the last 70 years by sharing stories and reflecting together through enjoyable activities

Thursday 4 Aug 6:30-8:30pm, The Point, Eastleigh
Move and Create Workshop, 16+

Explore the themes of our exhibition and help find different creative ways of telling our story! Express yourself through movement, creative writing, music and any other passions that represent who you are. Any experience level is wonderful!
