Professor Michael King, UCL Mental Health Sciences
To mark LGBT History Month, Professor Michael King will look at why homophobia has existed in nearly every society throughout history, and what motivates the hatred of gay people around the world.
Note: This lecture will have a sign language interpreter. There is also an induction loop in the theatre, please switch hearing aids to the ‘T’ position.
Note: The image on the front page of UCL's website is Alan Turing (Code breaker at Bletchley Park and the brains behind today’s modern computers), who committed suicide in 1954 after receiving oestrogen treatment for his homosexuality. He accepted treatment to avoid a prison sentence for his conviction in 1952 of gross indecency with another man. Gordon Brown issued a posthumous apology in September 2009.
