Many of you will have heard about the recent death of Maureen Colquhhoun MP, the UK’s first out lesbian MP, who represented Northampton North from 1974-1979. Maureen was a trailblazer for women, especially queer women, in politics, and her story needs to be told, particularly now during LGBT+ history month. Join us for a discussion of her career and her legacy.
Holly will be hosting the event, and confirmed speakers are:
Sammy Sturgess, historian from the History of Parliament project and former academic at Goldsmith’s Centre for Queer History
Carla Curtis-Tansley, the YF LGBTQIA+ AG Women’s Officer
