International Day Against Homophobia

LGB Rights in Europe

Saturday 17 May 2008

With the backdrop of attacks on LGB people and LGB rights in some areas of Eastern Europe and negative statements creeping further West this meeting will set an agenda and action plans to campaign for extension of rights and protections against homophobia in Europe.

The EU had promised a Single Equality Directive that would cover all strands but have said this may not happen and Sexual Orientation will not be covered. The EU has led many of the reforms over the recent years and this lack of leadership could have significant implications across the whole of Europe.

Speakers confirmed from:

  • University and College Union
  • TUC
  • National Union of Students
  • Education International
  • Association of Teachers and Lecturers

Venue:
Mechanics Institute
Princess Street
Manchester

10.30am – 4.30pm

This event is open to all no matter your self-identified sexual orientation.
