Matt gives talk about religious and cultural homophobia at De Montfort University, Leicester

As part of the “Sexuality, Gender Identity and Belief – The Leicester Approach” conference at De Montfort University, Matt gave a powerful talk and presentation about the dangers of ‘religious and cultural homophobia’, and what can be done to address it.

Co-organised by Leicester’s Trade Sexual Health and St Philip’s Centre, the attendees represented a broad cross section of society, with individuals from several faiths participating.

The dialogue was informative on many levels both ways, and key research findings from Dr Sarah-Jane Page from Aston University about attitudes towards the LGBTQI+ in faith communities being being presented in great detail.

I hope that this conversation continues and reaches many more people who may not have been able to attend on the day.
