Peter Tatchell is awarded the 2016 RSA Albert Medal for tireless campaigning on human rights and social equality.
In his Albert Medal Lecture, Peter Tatchell will speak about the ecology of campaigning for social transformation.
In less than 50 years, LGBT rights has gone from the margin to the mainstream. How was this transformation achieved? Peter Tatchell began his LGBT advocacy and activism half a century ago, combining both parliamentary and extra-parliamentary action to secure changes in public attitudes, the law and the way institutions treat LGBT people.
In his speech, Peter will talk about the ideals and methods, the setbacks and triumphs that led to one of the fastest, most successful social reform campaigns in British history.
