Who this event is for

  • Everyone


JHB Main Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus, Gipsy Lane site


Join in a panel conversation on LGBT+ identity, rights, pride and community.


You are invited to be inspired, enlightened and challenged by a lively discussion of the gains and continuing work to ensure diverse sexual orientations and gender identities are fully accepted and celebrated in UK society and communities. We will be looking at ways of belonging and creating a sense of community, as well as reflecting on responses to global events of violence and hate crime, actions from the UK government and the changing European context.


Our panelists bring perspectives from the forefront of current equality action - to enable us each to be and become who we are.


The panel is made up of:

  • Professor Nick Rumens, Visiting Professor in the Faculty of Business
  • Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, Executive Director of UK Black Pride
  • Dr Jay Stewart, Director of Gendered Intelligence
  • Tom Guy, President of National Student Pride


The panel is part of Oxford Brookes Events for LGBT History Month 2017 on the theme of Citizenship, Law and PSHE.
