London LGBTQ Learning Network: inclusion

Thursday 11 April 3.45pm to 9pm

Aim: This event will stimulate engagement and thinking and increase understanding about D/deaf and disability access and inclusion in creative ways. We will explore the social model of disability, and the cultural model of deafness. A diverse range of presenters and facilitators will address inclusion and access issues, the current context for disabled people, and how LGBTQ organisers, activists and artists can remove barriers in their own day to day work – with or without budgets.

centred is a community organisation run by diverse lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer (LGBTQ) people.

Our main activities include: publishing, community events, networking, volunteering, LGBTQ history and heritage activities, and community infrastructure.

Our work focuses on diverse LGBTQ experiences, especially where these issues intersect with experiences concerning race, gender, disability, deafness, age and minority faith. We work closely with friends, family and allies who also wish to achieve equality for all.
