Our LGBT history exhibition was held over five and a half days at the View from the Top gallery. About 200 people attended the launch night at which author Narvel Annable presented certificates to the Lookout Magazine team, a representative from the Chameleon group and - in absentia - to Richard McCance. Richard was able to receive his certificate a few days later. The evening ended in mild hysteria when several people had to be rescued by firemen having got stuck in the Waterstones' lift for 90 minutes.
Nearly 700 people (and a dog) attended the exhibition in total and the comments were extremely favourable along with several useful suggestions for the future.
We wish to thank Nottingham City Council, the Co-op and Nottingham Switchboard for their financial support for the event and to Debbie Law of the New Foresters for providing us with several wine boxes.

We hear that our 600 Famous LGBT Faces was used at a major event in London at which Ben Bradshaw MP was one of the speakers. As he got up to speak his "LGBT Face". by remarkable coincidence, appeared simultaneously on the screen behind him
