Join SUBU and BU in the Share lecture theatre on 19 February from from 6.30-8pm for a LGBT History Month public lecture with Stuart Milk, international human rights activist and youth advocate.
Stuart is also the co-founder and Executive Chair of the Harvey Milk Foundation. As the nephew of Harvey Milk, the iconic civil rights leader, Stuart has taken his uncle’s message of authenticity, and example of courage and the power of collaboration onto the global stage supporting local, regional and national human rights struggles and emerging LGBT communities in over 60 nations.
Stuart was the official surrogate on LGBT rights for US President Barack Obama and he successfully led campaigns for the establishment of the annual ‘Harvey Milk Day’ state holiday in California in the US. He has also accepted the highest civilian honour in the US - the Medal of Freedom - on behalf of his uncle, from President Obama, as well as led historic campaigns to have Harvey memorialised on a US Postage forever stamp and a newly commissioned US Navy ship - the first LGBT person to receive either honour
This event is open to all but you must register via Eventbrite.
