Outing The Past 2021: Call For Speakers

Outing The Past 2021: Call For Speakers
Written by Leeds Museums & Galleries  06/10/2020

Leeds will be holding its third OUTing the Past conference on Saturday 6 February 2021.

Because of Covid, this year’s event will be online (with a possible socially distanced event at Leeds Art Gallery, depending on circumstances)

OTP is calling for people to register as speakers with OUTing the Past here: https://www.outingthepast.com/festival-presenters-invitation-2021

Anyone who has an interesting story to tell relating to LGBT+ history recent or long past and could give a 20-minute evidence-backed talk about it is encouraged to apply.

For the Leeds event, we particularly want people from Leeds to step forward.

We particularly welcome speakers of African or Carribean heritage, speakers of South Asian Heritage and speakers of East Asian and South East Asian Heritage.

Leeds will provide modest additional support for local speakers deterred from registering owing to financial hardship.

The closing date for applications to give a talk is 19 October 2020.

OTP will provide full training on how to make a video for any potential speakers.

Anyone from the Leeds area interested in speaking who may need additional support should email outingthepast@leeds.gov.uk.
