Update: OutWord Bound awards

OutWord Bound – a writing competition for school pupils aged 11-16 that ran throughout February, jointly organised by York LGBT History Month and York LGBT Forum – was a fantastic success! Entrants wrote about LGBT life in the form of fiction, non-fiction or poetry. LGBT Staff Network Chair Dr Fiona Thompson was one of judges, alongside a variety of people from across York.

In celebration, an awards ceremony will be held tomorrow evening in the boardroom at the Aviva building on Wellington Row. There will be free wine and food available from 17:30 and the ceremony itself will start at 18:00. No need to register.

Do come along to support some great young writers and LGBT school outreach work!
