Award-winning author, Diana Souhami, will deliver the 2017 Allan Horsfall lecture

The 3rd Allan Horsfall Lecture will be delivered by Diana Souhami on Friday 3rd March at Liverpool John Moores University. The award-winning author will deliver her lecture ‘The Painter Gluck, “no prefix, suffix, or quotes” and Other Notable Lesbians’


The lecture also marks the start of SEXing the Past ‘17, which is part of the festival of LGBT history.

The aim of the annual Horsfall lecture is to highlight both an aspect of past attitudes towards sex and gender (what might be called LGBT history) and current day campaigns towards sex and gender equality. Past lectures have featured Stuart Milk, Professor Charles Upchurch,  Peter Tatchell and Professor Susan Stryker.

Allan Horsfall was a British gay rights campaigner and the founder of the North West Committee for Homosexual Law Reform, which later became the Campaign for Homosexual Equality.
