What does identity mean to you?

My identity as a gay man makes me extremely proud. I am fully accepting of everyone within our vibrant community. 

The last person to be executed in Peterborough was David Thompson Myers, who was publicly hung at Fengate in May 1812. According to accounts in the Stamford Mercury, he was hanged in front of a crowd of 5000 people while being held in the Abbot's Gaol (later Reba on Cathedral Square). His "crime" was sodomy. At the time, the "bloody code" carried the death penalty for more than 200 crimes, including homosexuality. Keep in mind that the city had a population of 3500 people. David Thompson Myers was convicted of performing a homosexual act in Burghley Park. The other man escaped. 

Identities is the first major project by queer-based production company Q Productions based in Peterborough. Their main aim is to give Cambridgeshire and the Fens an educational and meaningful project about queer people. Q Productions is run by Trans woman Alex and Trans genderfluid Teddi. The project was funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund through Your Community Greenspace.
