Join Amnesty International UK for a panel discussion with three inspiring activists: Phyll Opoku-Gyimah (UK Black Pride), Lisa Power (HIV Justice Network) and Christine Burns (author of Trans Britain).

Chaired by Lui Asquith, Vice Chair of the Amnesty UK LGBTI Network, the panel will look back on LGBTIQ activism in modern Britain and especially the role women have played in securing rights for the lesbian, gay, bi, trans, intersex and queer communities.

The panel will consider the history of the LGBTIQ movement, and what it has learned from, and can still learn from, other movements of the 20th and 21st century from the Civil Rights movement to Black Power to Women's Liberation. The panel will also discuss the relationships the LGBTIQ movements have had with other identities such as race and gender, and the relationship between LGBTIQ activism and feminism.

Expect an evening of educational and inspiring discussion!
