​Over the rainbow? LGBTQ in our changing world - Forum Report

This inaugural forum held at Rhodes House 24-26 February brought together a broad range of thinkers, activists and leaders to discuss their work improving the lives of LGBTQ people from around the world. The forum gave space to share our experiences and celebrate the work of scholars who have contributed to the unprecedented advance of LGBTQ rights in recent years.

This was the first time that Rhodes House formally invited LGBTQ scholars as such; a poignant moment in the history of the scholarship, and an opportunity for us to embrace our future.
