Wednesday 30 June
6.30-8 pm BST
This Pride, join us for an extravaganza of ideas with LGBTQIA+ thought leaders. You’re invited to a unique seven-person dialogue: The Long Queer Conversation.
Once again, Pride will look and feel very different this year – so we’ve been working with our two guest curators Jamie Windust and Reeta Loi, to try something new this year.
Featuring seven amazing speakers from the LGBTQIA+ community with hugely different and exciting perspectives to share with you, we are thrilled to welcome you to the stage:
– LGBTQ+ author, presenter and model, Jamie Windust
– Activist, music artist and writer, Reeta Loi
– Material scientist and TEDxLondonWomen speaker, Dr Clara Barker
– Intersex activist and creative consultant, Anick Soni
– Sexual health and wellness specialist and author, Ruby Stevenson
– Artist, curator, editor, writer and educator, Sunil Gupta
– Award-winning busybody and recovering academic Rob Berkeley
How does it work?
The Long Queer Conversation is a unique chain of conversations.
Each speaker will be on our virtual stage for 20 minutes, first as an interviewee and secondly as an interviewer, where they are all united by one common question: “How has the community changed for you in the past year?”
Expect no moderators, no scripts, no rules. This free-flowing format aims to allow our expert speakers to set the agenda and speak what’s on their minds.
