Join us for an evening on LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) consisting of a panel discussion on LGBTQ and human rights. Is The Netherlands still perceived as a safe place for the LGBTQ community? What is the situation in the UK and what are challenges globally?
We are so pleased to announce that Boris Dittrich, Peter Tatchell and Carolien van de Lagemaat will be speaking at the event!
