Mark Nichols from Northern Pride will deliver a public lecture at Newcastle University on the 20th of February as part of LGBT History Month. The first Pride march in Britain was in London in 1972; in 1995 Pride on Tyne was established, initially with a low-key university-based celebration. In 2007 Northern Pride replaced it and brought the parade to the city to make it a truly public celebration. This lecture recounts its history, and the obstacles and challenges it faced.

The lecture is free to attend, with seats allocated on a first come first serve basis.
