SIGN UP HERE to join us on this historic day to talk to someone who was instrumental in the Gay Rights movement. This online event will take place on 1 February 2021 from 18:00 to 19:00 GMT.
We will discuss Terry’s career, including his involvement in the Campaign for Homosexual Equality in the 1970s and the events that led to him co-founding GLAD (Gay Legal Advice).
In 1980, Terry Munyard in his capacity as an NCCL gay rights committee member, organised and spoke at a meeting in the House of Commons to highlight the unjust decision of the employment tribunals in a Scottish case, Saunders v Scottish National Camps, which ruled that it was fair to dismiss a man from his job simply because he was gay.
Terry retired in 2019 after representing one of the defendants in the Stansted 15 trial, who were charged after stopping a plane from removing refugees and asylum seekers, a significant number of whom are still in the UK as they had a right to be here.
This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about the history of the Gay Rights movement from someone who was directly involved.
There will be opportunity for audience questions.
Look forward to seeing you there!
