Out and Proud in Trade Unions, Michelle Clarkson @ The People's History Museum

Trade Unions have been at the forefront of campaigns to change equality law, contractual rights and workplace practices on LGBT equality – a role that is not always acknowledged, with the media quick to portray unions as concerned with narrow self-interest. Following the Brexit vote and other political upheavals, many feel as though we are in uncharted waters, with prejudice and hate crime on the increase.  This presentation will consider the lessons we can learn from the past to guide us through the next months and years.
