Richard Weston’s The Burying Party, featuring Matthew Staite tells the fascinating story of the Wilfred Owen’s final year on earth, 100 years after his tragic death in World War One. The war was a turning for point in the journey towards liberation for LGBT people, and our screening is a chance to discuss Wilfred Owen's work as part of this process, and as a lasting memorial to those lost. Owen's sexuality has always been a matter of debate, necessarily hidden in a time when homosexuality was criminalised, but he is generally recognised as the greatest of our WW1 poets, far more interested in the "pity of war" than any form of glorification.
We'll also be screening shirt film "Pansies" which documents Paul Harfleet’s ongoing passion to mark the places where homophobic and transphobic crimes have taken place by planting a single pansy, and recording the story of what took place there.
He has travelled the world, including stopping here in Liverpool to remember Michael Causer.

The films will be followed by a Q & A session looking at the role of remembrance in LGBT+ lives, with filmmaker Richard Weston and other guests to be announced.
