EVENT: Queer Question Time

Politicians, journalists, and sports stars will come give their frank views on a range of issues.

To celebrate the the launch of LGBT History Month 2011, a special Queer Question Time will take place on February 1.

Hosted by Evan Davis, the presenter of BBC's Today programme, the panel of five will focus on the issues of "tackling homophobia and transphobia in the world of sport".

Guests include MATTHEW PARRIS (writer, broadcaster and Times columnist), SUE SANDERS (LGBT activist and co-chair of Schools Out), JOHN AMAECHI (psychologist, New York Times best-selling author and former NBA basketball player), ANGELA EAGLE MP (Westminster's first out lesbian) and JULIET JACQUES (author of the Guardian's 'Transgender Journey' column).

It takes place in the Southwark Council Atrium in Tooley Street, London, SE1 2TZ.

MC Stewart Who? will open the evening at 7pm with a performance from the Pink Singers, London’s LGBT community choir.

This will be followed by Queer Question Time at 7.30pm.

Admission is free but advance booking is strongly advised as places are limited.
