CHE presents The 1st Allan Horsfall Lecture: Human Rights in the 1820s

By Festival Team on 13 Nov 2014

We are delighted to announce the formal launch for the 1st National Festival of LGBT History. The opening will be hosted by Sue Sanders (National Chair of Schools OUT UK & LGBT History Month) in front of an invited audience drawn from national and regional organisations, together with leading activists, politicians, and celebrities that have enriched our increasingly diverse nation.

The highlight of the launch will be the **1st Allan Horsfall Lecture**, in honour of one of the UK's leading human rights campaigners. The lecture will be presented by Prof. Charles Upchurch, associate professor in British History at Florida State University, who is flying over exclusively for the Festival. Prof Upchurch's lecture concerns the effort by parliamentarians and others to reform the laws against erotic sexual behaviours between men in Britain starting in the 1820s.
