The CEC Conference 'Equality and Religious Freedom - Equipping Activists for a changing world' will be held on Saturday the 5th April at Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square in central London. A full programme will be published shortly.

There will be two plenary sessions, one focusing on the international context of faith based homophobia, biphobia and transphobia, and the other focusing on the changing nature of LGBT activism in the UK. We will also have a panel session on the current political situation for LGBT rights in the UK and worldwide. Speakers will include prominent LGBT campaigners, trade unionists, lawyers and academics as well as politicians and representatives from faith communities.
Workshop discussions will also be held on a variety of topics including:

Activism - the next generation ~ Deconstructing complimentarity in the theology of marriage ~ Religious accommodation in schools and public services ~ Activism and well being ~ Celibacy? Monogamy? Polyamory? ~ Spirituality and sexuality ~ Intersex issues ~ Feminism and gender ~ Bisexual caucus
The aim of the Cutting Edge Consortium is to eliminate faith based homophobia, biphobia and transphobia and the 2014 Conference will, bring together a diversity of activists campaigning for this end.

Further details will be added to the site over the next days regarding purchasing tickets for the event. Please note that tickets will be available for online purchase and via the more traditional postal route
