Hundreds of people braved the cold and snowy weather on Friday 1 February to help celebrate the 10 year anniversary of ‘Loudest Whispers’ at St Pancras Hospital – part of Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust.
The evening, which was organised by charity ‘The Arts Project’, was a chance for 47 LGBT+ artists to showcase their vibrant art work alongside cabaret performances from singers, dancers and comedians.
The Mayor of Camden, Jenny Headlam-Wells and the Mayor of Islington, David Poyser officially opened the evening and Trust Chair, Leisha Fullick gave a speech to highlight the achievements of Loudest Whispers and the continuous support for the event from the Trust. Throughout the evening, artists shared the stories behind their art work, with the artists ranging from those in their teens to people aged 80+, with the multi-ethnic cultural diversity of our LGBT+ community reflected in the exhibition.
The event was also a chance for the Trust’s LGBT+ staff network to come together for their first social event of the year as well as mark the beginning of LGBT History Month.
Peter Herbert, Art Curator and exhibition organiser, said: “The night was fantastically well-attended and it was great to see the LGBT+ community and supporters of the event coming together to celebrate the achievements of Loudest Whispers over the past decade. Thanks to all those who made the evening such a success and here is to the next ten years!”
