We are delighted to be screening Love Works at Shout!Birmingham’s LGBT festival, now in it’s 7th iteration. Both Little Elephant and Chariot Riders will be screened as part of Shout Out alongside a couple of other films: Bulls by Joan Montesinos, which explores homosexuality within sport and Coming Out Stories by Birmingham LGBTCR6

The film programme will run on a loop from 12.30 – 3.30pm, on Saturday 14 November 2015, at Mac Birmingham, commencing afresh half past the hour.

I’ll be around to say ‘hi’ or have more of a natter if desired.

Hope to see you. Bobby 😉

We are utterly thrilled to be screening Little Elephant in the Indian capital on Sunday 1 November 2015, as part of 4th Delhi Shorts International Film Festival. It is now more important than ever to be presenting diverse sexual minorities in all its hues which makes us human. We would have loved to have been there, but next time hey! Wishing all a fantastic festival. Further info.

Walk with me…27 June 2015

I wasn’t planning on doing anything for the London Pride Parade this year due to personal reasons (not having enough time or resource to make it happen). And then I was talking to a friend, Laks, who said it was important to keep the momentum up. This external enthusiasm was all that was needed. Not unlike last year the deadline for registration had just passed and there was a waiting list. And then quite suddenly it became a reality – we have a place – the universe clearly was on side!

We have a place as a walking group to create Asian visibility at Pride. The front banner reads Proud Asian LGBTQ & Allies. All are welcome: whether you’re LGBT or straight, Asian or whatever else – we are family!

Come on your own or bring your family and friends.

For those that participated last year, they’ll know how electric the experience and reaction from the crowd was. Most were first timers and had not marched before.

If you’re free and interested I’d welcome your support. As you know we are stronger and more visible en masse; stand up and be counted and let’s march for solidarity.

I can provide you with a flag or you can bring your own as well as banners and placards too.

A voluntary contribution is welcome. It will go towards the cost of registration, flags and transporting materials to London.

Register your interest with me to be part of London Pride 2015.

See you very soon. x
