Come along to this panel discussion led by the RSA LGBT Creative Cultures Network on racism in LGBT+ communities
- Who do you think of when people from Black or Asian LGBT+ communities are mentioned?
- Is visibility of Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) role models almost non-existent in LGBT+ communities?
- Is mainstream media to blame or is racism really rife in LGBT+ communities in the UK? Do these communities refuse to promote BAME role models?
- Do many gay or bisexual or trans people of colour have depression and other issues due to racism in the LGBT+ communities?
We'll hear from an expert panel on their views on these questions and more, followed by a Q&A and an opportunity to network. The panel will be moderated by Network Lead and Artistic Director of Wise Thoughts, Niranjan Kamatkar FRSA.
The event is free to attend, but please do book your place at the top of this page.

Location: The Romney Room, RSA House, 8 John Adam Street, London WC2N 6EZ
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 stigma 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, statutory bodies and media for the future use. It is a great opportunity for people who acted as informal ambassadors to work towards creating LGBT ambassadorships structures.
