Event description: To mark Word Aids Day, the Shropshire Rainbow Film Festival in conjunction with the Old Market Hall Cinema, will be a screening of “Holding the Man”
“Holding the Man”
Tim and John fell in love and embarked on a forbidden high school romance that was to last a lifetime. Together they conquered countless prejudices and challenges to become champions of gay rights. Holding The Man is a remarkable true-life love story of Timothy Conigrave and John Caleo and their enduring love for each other has been immortalised in Tim’s own cult classic memoir and in Tommy Murphy’s award winning stage play, which has now been adapted for the screen.
