Building the Future, Remembering the Past | Peter Tatchell
The LGBT+ community has won many hard fought battles. But that doesn't make up for the years of suffering caused by prejudice and oppression. So how should we redress the wrongs done to that community in the past? And is it even possible?
On Today’s episode we’re joined by Renowned LGBT+ activist Peter Tatchell who outlines a direction to move forward without forgetting our past.
Peter Tatchell is a prominent activist, author and co-founder of the queer human rights group OutRage!. Through the Peter Tatchell Foundation, he campaigns for human rights in Britain and internationally.
