The Human Rights Forum brings together prominent activists and thought-leaders to discuss the challenges that continue to face LGBTQ+ communities today, and what we as individuals can do to bring about political or social change.
Greater Manchester has a legacy history of promoting equality and diversity across all equalities groups and was at the forefront of promoting the rights of LGBTQ+ people in the UK. The Human Rights Forum is part of our mission to amplify LGBTQ+ issues and campaigning for equality. We are committed to improving the lives of LGBTQ+ people in Greater Manchester and beyond.
The Human Right Forum is free to attend.
