Kickstarting the series of talks is Sophie Cook, presenter and head of Latest LGBT+TV. Sophie is also the photographer for English rock band, The Libertines and premiership football team AFC Bournemouth.

Sophie has been receiving some rather unwelcome attention recently from Christian Voice, a nasty collection of Christians headed by a rather misguided man obsessed with all things LGBT+ called Stephen Green.

Sophie, who is also a motivational speaker will be talking at 6pm on Sunday, March 5.

Other speakers during the month will include:

♦ The author of One Spirit, Interfaith minister and teacher, Rev Felice Rhiannon (Sunday 12);

Rev Heather Leake Date (Sunday 19)
Rev Heather Leake Date (Sunday 19)

♦ Methodist Presbyter, HIV Chaplain, pharmacist and trustee of Lunch Positive and The Martin Fisher Foundation, Rev Heather Leake Date (Sunday 19);

♦ Lay Minister, Safeguarding officer with the Village MCC Senior leadership team and Emergency Responder Sarah Barber (Sunday 26); and

All events will take place at the Somerset Day Centre, 62 St James’s St, BN2 1PJ Brighton starting at 6pm on each Sunday.
