‘This could be our future’: TEDx talk by Allsorts CEO is now available online

Graham Robson August 17, 2022

The TEDx talk of Allsorts Youth Project’s CEO, Katie Vincent, is now available to watch online.

The theme of TEDx Brighton’s 2022 event in March was This could be our future. Katie was one of the many speakers to take to the stage, and tackled the theme with a view to seeing a world in which LGBTQ+ children and young people are free to be themselves, and why the fight for young LGBTQ+ people is far from over.

Whilst reflecting on her own personal experiences as a gay woman growing up in ’80s Britain, Katie also draws on her professional experience as the CEO of Sussex-based LGBTQ+ youth charity, Allsorts Youth Project. The TEDx talk highlights a wide range of challenges still facing LGBTQ+ people today, such as gender stereotypes, LGBTQ-phobic bullying, transphobia in the media, and more.

 “Whilst the future may look bright for some LGBT+ people, for many of us, it’s hard to imagine a future where we aren’t discriminated against, bullied or excluded from society”
