Christmas Issue 2011
ove Music Hate Homophobia (LMHH) is a national campaign that works to tackle homophobic behaviour by shedding light on the issues surrounding it while showcasing local music talent. The event was created through a joint effort between NUS LGBT Campaign and United Against Fascism to counter efforts by fascist groups like the EDL/WDL and BNP. It has gone around the country but never made it to Wales and so an initiative was born to run LMHH in Bangor. Bangor University students teamed up with the Students’ Union, Unity Bangor and Amnesty Bangor to throw one of the best gigs this term. The line up includes Bangor SU president Jo Caulfield and Aberystwyth Guild president Ben Meakin who will be thrashing out Indie Electro tunes throughout the night.
Sama Abdul will finish the night off with a some Progressive Underground Techno. “I think this is a fantastic initiative taken by the Students’ Union and we hope other Universities across Wales follow suit,” said Zahid Raja, who sits on the national Love Music Hate Homophobia steering committee. This event will also work as a model for other events to be run in the area like Love Music Hate Racism, which is set to come to Bangor in March. Many national organisations and charities that work with issues surrounding sexuality and gender have failed to engage North Wales, so this events aims to change this by mainly supporting charities that work in North Wales.
