Jeffrey Weeks, who has been exploring LGBT/queer history since the 1970s, will reflect on the importance of owning our own history, and the role of historical understanding in shaping queer community, identity and politics.

About this network...
Leading cultural change and enriching society around diverse and inclusive LGBT+ issues via lecture series, creative interventions, and networking events while reducing the stigmatising and stereotyping of LGBT+ people.
We will aim to work towards conditions for change: working with education, arts, culture, as well as sports bodies and other workplaces (corporate, statutory and public bodies) to enhance engagement of LGBT people and bring LGBT cultural issues to the forefront.
We will aim to work towards creating a resource base of LGBT practitioners for educational and statutory bodies and future media use. It is a great opportunity for people who acted as informal ambassadors to work towards creating LGBT ambassadorships structures.
Location: Romney Room, RSA, 8 John Adam St, London WC2N 6EZ
