Speaker information

Peter Tatchell

Peter Tatchell has been campaigning for human rights, democracy and global justice since 1967. He is a member of the queer human rights group OutRage! and the left-wing of the Green Party. In 1969, on realising that he was gay, the struggle for queer freedom became an increasing focus of his activism. Throughout much of the 1970s, and beyond, he was active in anti-imperialist solidarity campaigns, supporting the national liberation struggles of the peoples of Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mozambique amongst many others. He also campaigned against the dictatorships in a number of countries including: Franco’s Spain, Caetano’s Portugal, the Colonel’s Greece, and Marcos’s Philippines.
