The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, is hosting an event targeted at LGBTQ+ women as part of International Women’s Week and LBT Women’s Health Week. The event takes place between 10.00am and 1.00pm on Tuesday 10 March 2020, at City Hall.
The aim of the event is to raise awareness about LGBTQ+ women’s health inequalities, to make it easier for service providers to empower service users, hear from agencies that support LGBTQ+ women, and to raise awareness from the audience who may have never considered the health issues outside of a heterosexist paradigm.
The Mayor is aware that LGBTQ+ women’s voices often go unheard, and he is keen to hear directly from a wide range of women about their experiences and the barriers they still experience.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear about the Mayor’s approach to health equality, and from a range of speakers including Professor Catherine Meads, Professor of Health, Anglia Ruskin University, Vicky Hobart, Head of Health at the Greater London Authority, and interact with a panel of health professionals, chaired by Dr Ronx Ikharia.
