"Rainbows, Rights and Religiosity"
Speaker: Gerard Phillips
Gerard Phillips has been Vice President of the National Secular Society since 2010. A gay activist of sorts, Gerard 'came out' aged 17 while working for the Ministry of Defence (that career didn't last...) and went on his first 'Gay Pride' demonstration in 1981. He has, amongst other things, been a volunteer on the London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard and on the Cardiff AIDS Helpline and worked for three years as a researcher at University College Cardiff on the UK's first ever Government-funded survey into gay and bisexual male lifestyles. He now lives in Brighton (Hove actually...) and is a member of the Brighton Secular Humanists.
