LGBT+ identity, rights, pride and community @ JHB Main Lecture Theatre, Headington Campus, Oxford Brookes University | Oxford | England | United Kingdom

Join in a panel conversation on LGBT+ identity, rights, pride and community.

You are invited to be inspired, enlightened and challenged by a lively discussion of the gains and continuing work to ensure diverse sexual orientations and gender identities are fully accepted and celebrated in UK society and communities. We will be looking at ways of belonging and creating a sense of community, as well as reflecting on responses to global events of violence and hate crime, actions from the UK government and the changing European context.

Our panelists bring perspectives from the forefront of current equality action – to enable us each to be and become who we are.
