Introducing the Kaleidoscope Staff Media and Book Club

Posted in: Staff-Only Events

Last month we announced that we had appointed a new Staff Events Manager to plan staff only events every term.

The first of these will be a virtual Media and Book Club, which we hope to make a regular event.

The idea is to pick a film, TV show, documentary or book for the group to watch or read individually (all suggestions welcome) and then we’ll get together to have a chat about it over a cup of tea or a glass of wine.

October’s choice, Gossamer Folds was suggested by a Kaleidoscope member and is available to stream for free as part of the Iris Prize LGBT+ Film Festival 2020.

During the summer of 1986, ten-yr-old Tate Millikin is uprooted and forced to move to the suburbs of Kansas City. When his transphobic father discovers that their next door neighbour is a trans woman named Gossamer, he forbids Tate to even say hello to her. As Tate’s parents’ marriage unravels, Tate defies his father’s orders and, instead, forms a powerful bond with Gossamer and her father, Edward, a retired English professor.

You can watch the movie for free from 8-11 October and we will then host the discussion on Wednesday 14 October at 8pm.

Please add the event to your diary and join using the link below.
