Yesterday Peter Tatchell gave a keynote lecture at Canterbury Christ Church University, organised by the CCCU LGBTQi Staff Network.

Panel members included Paul Twocock, Rt. Reverend Dr Alan Wilson, Professor Bee Scherer and Professor Emerita Sue Sanders.

Due to a very public cancellation and accusations of transphobia towards Peter Tatchell, the event had a lot of media coverage.
