In 72 countries across the globe it’s a crime for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people to be who they are. In many more LGBTI people face discrimination, abuse and in some cases even death.
Scotland has long been engaged in the international struggle for LGBTI equality around the globe from the first international gay rights conference held in Edinburgh in 1974 to recent outrages in Uganda, Nigeria, Russia, and the USA.
As people in Scotland increasingly ask ‘what can we do?’, we’ll be exploring the issues in an evening of discussion and debate on Scotland’s international role in LGBTI equality with key speakers and organisations.
This event is free and light refreshments will be provided.
