Besi Besemar July 28, 2019

BBC Sussex will record an edition of Politics and Chill an LGBT+ style ‘Question Time’ programme at the Camelford Arms on Tuesday, July 30 from 7pm.

50 years on from the Stonewall Riots, there’s still plenty to talk about in the world of LGBT+ politics.
Put your LGBT+ questions to a panel of experts from across the spectrum at a special edition of BBC Sussex’s politics programme, Politics & Chill.
The panellists will be:
 ♦ Linda Riley – publisher of DIVA magazine
♦ Josephine O’Carroll – Conservative candidate for Brighton Queen’s Park in the 2019 election.
♦ Grace Cummings – Project worker at The Clare Project, Brighton’s long established support and social group for transgender people wishing to explore issues around gender identity.
♦ Ben Hunte – the BBC’s first LGBT+ correspondent appointed in December, 2018.
