Peter TatchellBased on his experiences of the ongoing battle for LGBT human rights, Peter Tatchell argued that as a society we are Not Queer Enough. An audience of 120 people heard his inspiring rant on issues ranging from international human rights legislation, civil partnerships and civil marriage, to the Vatican’s change of policy regarding the use of condoms – an excellent reminder of the ongoing struggle for both LGBT and human rights.
 
For over 40 years, beginning in 1967 with campaigners for Aboriginal rights and against the death penalty, the Australian-born British activist Peter Tatchell has campaigned on issues of democracy, civil liberties, social equality, environmental protection, peace and global justice. He is a co-founder and legal activist in the queer rights direct action group OutRage!, which in 1994 outed ten Anglican Bishops, accusing them of hypocrisy for publically endorsing the church’s homophobic stance. His attempted citizen’s arrest of Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe, made him one of the world’s most recognisable campaigners for human rights. A candidate for the Labour party in 1983 and more recently the Green Party, he is, in print and through broadcast media, a frequent contributor on LGBT rights and other issues of social justice, authoring over 3,000 articles and six books.

Please join us in celebrating the launch of this third book, with readings from the writers and the opportunity to meet them all.

The success of the Write to Work programme has been far reaching with writers having gone on to have articles published in The Guardian, become freelance copywriters and proofreaders, as well as obtaining full time jobs within the arts sector.
