Our regular monthly Movie Nights at Positive East – on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Come along and enjoy a film in the company of others living with HIV, enjoy a warm welcome, a hot meal, and maybe even some popcorn.
This time, for an alternative Valentine’s Day and to mark LGBT+ History Month, we have the classic British 1996 coming of age romantic comedy ‘Beautiful Thing’ set on an estate in 90s Thamesmead. Shy Jamie and athletic Ste are teenage neighbours. Both boys think they could be gay, and finally explore their feelings when Ste is allowed to stay over at Jamie’s place after an incident with his abusive father. The boys grow close, while Jamie’s caring mother, Sandra, and quirky neighbour Leah, offer much needed solidarity and emotional support.
