About this event

The University of York invites you to a LGBT+ History Month event with the York-based charity Time to be Out.

Escaping persecution – LGBT+ stories of asylum, past and present

Across the world and across the centuries, LGBT+ people have often suffered persecution for being who they are. In amongst the stories of pain, there are narratives of hope and joy as people escape persecution and build new lives for themselves.

Time to be Out is a York-based charity which works with LGBT+ asylum seekers and refugees to support them on their way to living freely. This talk will focus on some of the barriers faced and overcome in these stories, and how we can all make a difference.

The talk will include a Q&A. Please note that the event will be recorded for those unable to attend and published on the University’s ED&I YouTube channel.
