In the coming months the British people will be asked to vote and decide whether our country should leave or remain in the European Union. What effect will the outcome of this vote have on our fight for equality for LGBT* people at home and around the world?
In this event, jointly hosted by LGBT Labour and Labour Movement for Europe, come along and hear from our international panel of expert speakers on the role the EU has had and continues to play in the struggle for equality and the potential risks to the rights and protections we currently enjoy if Britain votes to leave.
