Stonewall 50th Anniversary - An invitation from the Mayor of London

Friday, July 5, 2019 - 11:00 to 13:00

As part of his annual Pride in London celebrations the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, would like to invite you to City Hall as his guest on Friday 5 July 2019, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, and to celebrate Stonewall UK’s 30th anniversary.

The event takes place from 11.00am to 1.00pm, and we are delighted that model and social activist Munroe Bergdorf has agreed to be the Mayor’s guest compere for the day. The theme for the event is recognising the value of intersectional LGBT+ identities.

This event will focus on the experience of younger LGBT+ Londoners aged 16-30 – particularly those from BAME backgrounds. We are aware that sometimes younger voices are not heard, so this Pride event has been created for them. The Mayor wants to hear directly from them about their experiences of growing up and living in London, and the barriers they still experience. Attendees will hear from the Mayor and Ruth Hunt, CEO of Stonewall. They will have the opportunity to interact with Munroe and other LGBT+ influencers, and to participate in group discussions with young BAME LGBT+ Londoners.

To confirm your attendance please RSVP to saira.bux@london.gov.uk by Monday 1 July 2019. Please inform us if you have any specific access or dietary requirements. Light refreshments/lunch will be served in a safe space where photography will be optional. Please note that capacity is strictly limited to 80 people. A reserve list will be in operation once the event reaches capacity.

If you would like any further information, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at rob.downey@london.gov.uk or telephone 020 7983 4092.

The Mayor looks forward to welcoming you to City Hall in July.
