Supporting sexual and gender diversity

Colleagues are invited to attend a lunchtime event supporting sexual and gender diversity.

Rainbow Parkinson to celebrate LGBT month February 2018

The International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOBiT) is marked annually in more than 130 countries on Friday 17 May. The day is designed to raise awareness and acknowledge that while progress has been made, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people still face prejudice and discrimination across the world today.

We will be marking the day with a series of talks, including sessions on personal Trans experience, West Yorkshire Queer Stories/MESMAC and heteronormativity and homophobia through words, images and the body. Our LGBT+ Staff Network and the Equality Policy Unit (EPU) will also be talking about their roles and the policy framework at Leeds.

Hosted by the Faculty of Medicine and Health, in collaboration with EPU, the event will run from noon to 2pm on Friday 17 May in Seminar Room 2.08 Baines Wing, with lunch provided.

Registration is essential via Eventbrite.

Please visit the Equality Policy Unit website for the draft agenda and further information.
