Event Details

The Conway Hall Ethical Society presents

Godless and broke: making secular groups less middle class - Alex Gabriel

Alex was homeless in the first year of his life and grew up with a single mum on benefits. Now he's a full time atheist who thinks we need to talk more about class.

Doubt and skepticism don't cost money, but movement built around them often do. Secularists are broadening their image, but their cause remains seen, not totally unfairly, as middle class. We have to take action to reach hard up atheists and skeptics, or risk being a community for the well off. In this talk, Alex discusses how.

Alex Gabriel is the author of Godlessness in Theory, a blog on religion and how to leave it, popular rhetoric and political dissent, secular, nerd and LGBT culture, sexuality and gender or whatever comes to mind. His writing appears at AlterNet, the Rationalist Association and elsewhere. Follow his work, or find him on Twitter @AlexGabriel.

11.00, £5 in advance, Donation basis for others/Free to Ethical Society members

Tea & Coffee will be available.

Conway Hall

Conway Hall is a landmark of London's independent intellectual, political and cultural life.

Conway Hall opened in 1929, is owned by Conway Hall Ethical Society, which was first opened in 1929. The name was chosen in honour of Moncure Daniel Conway (1832 - 1907), anti-slavery advocate, out-spoken supporter of free thought and biographer of Thomas Paine.

Conway Hall now hosts a wide variety of lectures, classical music, classes, performances, community and social events. It is renowned as a hub for free speech and independent thought.

Founded in the 1880s, our chamber music concert series (now Conway Hall Sunday Concerts) - are the longest-running of their kind in Europe. The ethos of "affordable classical music for all" still remains.
