Frequently it seems LGBT is a fractured group. We have the gay male scene, the separate lesbian clubs, transgendered groups, and bisexuality often seems mute and invisible. Yet the LGBT community is frequently referred to in the media, particularly at Pride.
So we're bringing together different representatives, well-known and eloquent figures from each of these groups to speak about what the LGBT community means to them, personally, followed by an open discussion.
Do we still have a bond of solidarity or are the L, G, B and T standing separate?
The event will be filmed by LGBT TV, hosted by Patrick Cash, produced under the acclaimed Dean Street Wellbeing programme and part of the Landor Fringe.
This is a free event but pre-booking is recommended: http://lambcofringefestival.co.uk/july-27/
