LGBT History: in the workplace and in society

Nearly everyone now knows the story of Pride, where LGBT and union campaigners created a common cause in pursuit of equality. Yet too much of LGBT history is still hidden. This year Prospect is celebrating LGBT History Month by looking at how we tell our stories and create a shared understanding of our diverse heritage. The National Trust has been leading this work with its Prejudice & Pride campaign exploring the hidden histories of our historic places – and we are proud that our members at the National Trust have been at the forefront of making this campaign a success.

We will be joined by:

Paul Stewart, President of Prospect’s National Trust branch who was our lead representative working on Prejudice & Pride campaign.

Tom Freshwater, National Public Programmes Manager for the National Trust

Amy Lame, LGBT campaigner, author and the Mayor of London’s Night Czar, who recently published the first LGBT+ history book for young adults.

We will also have a short video featuring some of our LGBT+ members about why being involved in the Pride movement is important. Followed by an opportunity to Network
