Too often the contributions of people of colour and trans activists are overlooked and whitewashed from history. As we look back on the Stonewall riots of 1969 and the history of LGBTQ+ activism, we reflect on the ways cis white people benefit from minority-led labour.
Our panel discusses the origins of Pride as a protest, the hidden figures of the movement, and how the corporate sponsorship of Pride today challenges its original meaning. In conversation will be journalist and director of Black Girl Festival, Paula Akpan, gay rights pioneer Andrew Lumsden and spoken word poet, model and trans visibility activist Kai-Isaiah Jamal.
