Sexuality Mythbusting

Event details

This event has already taken place.

Exploring the origins of gender norms and their effects on the LGBTIA+ community.

Following the recent release of Russell T. Davies’ limited series about the dawn in crisis in early 1980s London and the celebration of LGBT+ History Month, join us as we reflect on the impact of the series ‘It’s a Sin’ as it mourns the loss and celebrates the lives of AIDS victims. Speakers will be exploring the myth that the LGBT+ community is ‘hypersexualised’ or ‘sexually excessive/obsessive’, as well as continuing and prevailing myths around HIV/AIDS.

Join Luke Johns and Sara Babahami in an open and safe forum as they engage with the audience regarding ‘It’s a Sin’ and discuss sexual health in the LGBT+ community. Speakers will focus on tackling the sexual myths that pervade in society and within the LGBT+ community.

This session is for Civil Servants only.
