Professor Jaspal will discuss how societal norms and stereotypes in relation to sexuality, religion and ethnicity can shape British South Asian gay men’s identities and experiences, as well as their strategies for coping. He will also outline their impact on physical health outcomes and the importance of campaigns and interventions for
reducing stigma on the basis of ethnicity and sexuality..
Dr Bradshaw will then look at the provisions of the Equality Act and organisational approaches to it, as well as the conflicts between religion and LGBT rights such as same-sex marriages.
