LGBTQ+ Representation in London’s Public Realm

Join Queer Britain and the team working on the Mayor’s Commission for Diversity in the Public Realm for an evening of discussion.

About this Event

Join Queer Britain  and the team working on the Mayor’s  Commission for Diversity in the Public Realm for an evening of discussion.

The event will begin with an introduction to the work of the Commission. We will then hear a provocation from Lisa Power and Dan Vo before launching into community-led conversations on:

  • who do we claim as part of queer heritage?
  • what terms do we use to describe our past?
  • how do we deal with divided views and contested heritage?
  • how do we ensure intersectionality and inclusion?

 

The purpose of the Commission for Diversity in the Public Realm is to lead a London-wide conversation on how to practically achieve greater diversity of representation across the public realm and heritage sites. This will have a focus on increasing presence and visibility of underrepresented groups including LGBTQ+, Black, Asian and minority ethnic, women and disabled groups, and will include consideration of representation of socio-economic diversity.

Discussions from this event will feed directly into the first meeting of the Commission in January 2021. This forms part of a series of community events and there will be further opportunities to engage with the work of the Commission throughout the two-year length of the project.

This is an online event. A zoom meeting link will be shared with you via the email you have registered with prior to the event.
