LGBT History Month lecture - Global LGBT Inclusive Human Rights @ Share Lecture Theatre, Fusion Building | England | United Kingdom

Join Students’ Union at Bournemouth Union and Bournemouth University as we present our LGBT History Month public lecture with Stuart Milk.

Stuart Milk is an international human rights activist and youth advocate. He is the co founder and Executive Chair of the Harvey Milk Foundation. As the nephew of Harvey Milk, the iconic civil rights leader, Stuart has taken his uncle message of authenticity, example of courage and the power of collaboration onto the global stage supporting local, regional and national human rights struggles and emerging LGBT communities on the ground in over 60 nations on six continents.

Stuart, was the official surrogate on LGBT rights for US President Barack Obama and he successfully led campaigns for the establishment of the now annual Harvey Milk Day state holiday in California, he accepted the highest civilian honor in the US, the Medal of Freedom on behalf of his uncle, from President Obama. He has led historic campaigns to have Harvey memorialized on a US Postage forever stamp and a newly commissioned US Navy ship, the first LGBT person to receive either honor.

Asylum in the UK: LGBT+ experience of the asylum system @ John Henry Brookes Main Lecture Theatre, Oxford Brookes University
Feb 21 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Asylum in the UK: LGBT+ experience of the asylum system @ John Henry Brookes Main Lecture Theatre, Oxford Brookes University | United Kingdom

Antonia Bright, national spokesperson of the Movement for Justice (MFJ), will facilitate a conversation with MFJ LGBT+ refugees, including Aisha Shumazzi, about their experience of the asylum system.

LGBT+ relationships are illegal in 74 countries around the world. In 13 of those countries being gay is punishable with death (Independent 2016). Many people come to the UK seeking a new life free from these prejudices. MFJ represents and protests on behalf of the UK asylum seekers and has done extensive work with LGBT+ asylum seekers.

Issues up for discussion include why the fight for immigrant rights and against the use of detention centres is important, and what role LGBT+ people are playing in the movement.
