We are so pleased to be bringing you this virtual exhibition – Icons & Allies; a celebration of twenty inspirational people from our Welsh past. All of them, whether LGBT+ or not, have contributed significantly to our history and to our visibility. The exhibition was funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund Wales and shows 20 profiles of LGBT+ Icons and Allies, both Welsh and English.
Every minority community needs allies to work with us and show that we are part of the wider world. This is a small number of the many who have helped LGBT people in Wales and the wider world to become ourselves and to be proud of our achievements.
These posters were created by Pride Cymru as part of the LGBT History Month and funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The people in them were nominated by members of the community. The stories on the posters here are the tip of the iceberg and we encourage you to learn more about them, online or in the library.
