The Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival 'arrived' on the official Shrewsbury Scene, with the likes of the Flower Show and Jazz Festival, when the Mayor handed the civic baton to Geoff Hardy for safekeeping during the three day long event.
Shrewsbury Carnival's theme for 2015 was Carnival Goes On Holiday, and our LGBT contingent interpreted it as a beach party! The weather was appropriate to a bank holiday - very wet! But our varied crew had a good time supported by THT, Victim Support and two eye catching VW Buggies. We won first prize for Most Original Transport.
A new walking and cycling group from Chill Out Xtra launched in November with a round-the-loop walk to the weir. What a pity they missed seeing the leaping salmon!
A larger than usual LGBT stall was very visible at Shrewsbury's Diversity Day celebration in the Square in July.
Space Hoppers made an appearance at the Pink Picnic in August 2015. As did around 25 picnickers.
In October the LGBTshrewsbury website was remodellled and enlarged using this motif.
For World AIDS Day in December the Rainbow Film Festival team screened 'Alive': an uplifting story of a group of men who learn to parachute and who gradually realise that each of them has something in common; living with HIV. Screened at The Hive.
A fantastic 1970s vinyl disco and auction was held in November. Authentically groovy!
