LGBT History Month - Julie Bindel

Event location: Working Class Movement Library

Date: 4th Feb 2017

Event time: 14:00 to 16:00

Given the high profile now attached to this talk, and in view of the limited numbers of people that can get into the annexe where the talk will be held, the Library Trustees have decided to make it an all-ticket event.  An invitation was sent out on our e-bulletin earlier this week, and all tickets have now been allocated.  It will not be possible to fit you in on the day if you have not got a ticket - sorry.

We are pleased to welcome journalist, writer, broadcaster and researcher Julie Bindel to speak as we mark LGBT History Month.  Her topic is 'Growing up as working class and lesbian in the North of England'.

Julie has been active in the global campaign to end violence towards women and children since 1979, and has written extensively on topics such as rape, domestic violence, prostitution and trafficking. She is currently a Visiting Fellow at Lincoln University.

Julie's 2014 book on the state of the lesbian and gay movement in the UK, Straight Expectations, has been praised for being thought-provoking and challenging.
