As part of the first National Festival of LGBT History we guest curated a unique 60-minute short film programme that was screened at Archives+ at Manchester Central Library.
I Like Dreaming explored the crossover between art, bohemia and LGBT sexuality through a love of dreaming, fantasy, dressing up and going out. The programme included films from the British Film Institute, North West Film Archive and Lux Moving Image Archive.
