Part of LGBT History Month, Bradford Politics in the Pub brings you ’50 Years On: The Fight for LGBT Rights’ on 28th February.

Bringing you some fantastic speakers who’ll bring to life past struggles for equality, explore current issues facing lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people, and share where LGBT rights needs to go & how to get there, Politics in the Pub is proud to support LGBT History Month.

We’re delighted to be returning to Glyde House, Little Horton Lane on 28th February, starting at 7.15pm.

Tickets are free but you must book on to the event.

Speakers

Lisa Lee is Chair and Founder of Trans Mission, an information & support group for trans and gender variant people. Trans Mission is based in Bradford but covers the whole of West Yorkshire, offering social and support groups, mental health services and peer mentoring. Trans Mission offers: “Advocacy, Trans Awareness Training and endless cups of tea and biscuits” but, fear not, Glyde House’s usual array of beers, wines & spirits will be on offer for those of us wanting something a little stronger.

Janice Thornton is a Humanist Celebrant who has been active in politics throughout her life, from CND marches, political theatre, feminist action and campaigning for equal rights. Janice believes we are at a unique time of change and opportunity, and that we should all work together to make a difference to what’s next for the world.

Roy Ward works within Student Engagement & Outreach at Bradford College. As part of his role he delivers workshops on LGBT awareness to young people across West Yorkshire and is one of the founding members of the College’s LGBT Staff Network. As a student, Roy became Chair of the Leeds University Union LGBT Society and got involved in the NUS LGBT Campaign. Whilst no longer engaged with student politics, Roy is a vocal advocate of LGBT equality both in this country and around the world.
