London Pride Inside Panel

On what would have been the day of London Pride, London Lib Dems are inviting you to have #PrideInside with a panel discussion (from 2PM) and quiz night (from 7PM).

The topic of this panel will be the fight for equality in the ‘20s. 

We are very lucky to be joined by a stellar group of panelists, including:

  • Baroness Lynne Featherstone
    Member of Parliament for Hornsey and Wood Green between 2005 and 2015, before becoming Baroness Featherstone, of Highgate in October 2015. As Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Equalities she put into place the same sex marriage law. She was awarded Stonewall's Politician of the Year Award in both 2009 and 2012 for her work to support equality for lesbian, gay and bisexual people.

  • Baroness Liz Barker
    A Patron of Opening Doors London, a charity providing support for older LGBT people, and an Ambassador for the Albert Kennedy Trust.  She was created a life peer as Baroness Barker, of Anagach in Highland on 31 July 1999.
    She bravely revealed that she was in a same sex relationship in a speech on the the same sex marriage act.

  • Helen Belcher
    A trans rights activist and Liberal Democrat politician. She has been featured in The Independent on Sunday’s Rainbow List for her work on LGBT issues, particularly those affecting the trans community.  In 2010 she co-founded Trans Media Watch, a trans-awareness charity.
  • Josh Babarinde
    Josh is the founder of Cracked - a social enterprise staffed by ex-young offenders. In 2018 and 2019, the Evening Standard named Cracked It the Social Enterprise of the Year. Josh stood for Parliament in Bethnal Green and Bow in 2019, and has played a leading role in coordinating the Lib Dem response to coronavirus in Eastbourne -  winning the top telephone drive in the UK.
