Race, Gender and Sexuality | In conversation with Phyll Opoku-Gyimah (she/her)

We are delighted that Phyll Opoku-Gyimah will be joining us for an insightful discussion into her life and work as an advocate for the LGBTQ community.

Phyll Opoku-Gyimah is the nucleus of the award-winning celebration and protest that is UK Black Pride. Widely known as Lady Phyll – partly due to her decision to reject an MBE in the New Year’s Honours' list to protest Britain’s role in formulating anti-LGBTQ penal codes across its empire – she is also the executive director of Kaleidoscope Trust, an organisation working towards the liberation of LGBTQ people around the world; a community builder and organiser; an Albert Kennedy Trust patron, and a public speaker focusing on race, gender, sexuality and class. She's regularly called upon to advise nascent LGBTQ organisations around the world to help leaders create cogent organising strategies, establish robust partnership networks and work effectively in service of the LGBTQ community.


This talk will cover the topics race, gender and sexuality and there will be an opportunity for you to put your own questions to our guest speaker.
