Who are the villains and heroes of LGBT history? How did England end up with its anti-LGBT laws? How did they spread across the Empire and what are the ongoing consequences overseas? Join us for this LGBT History Month event as we look at the history of LGBT rights in the UK and hear the personal stories of those who have been affected by the UK’s anti-LGBT laws.

Panellists include Caroline Paige, the first officer to transition gender in the British Armed Forces; Patrick Lyster-Todd, Director at Pride in London; and barrister Peter Laverack (more panellists and bios to follow soon).

Doors: 6pm
Panel discussion: 6.30-8pm
Q&A and drinks reception: 8-8.30pm
