The first event is in the afternoon and is an interactive session where we will explore the challenges, issues and opportunities faced by both employers and employees in relation to LGBT in the workplace. We will discuss the challenges of confidentiality and stigma considering actions to support LGBT employees.
The second event is in the evening and will feature our special guest, Adam Kashmiry, who will be interviewed by myself. Following an inspirational TEDx Glasgow talk in June, and a successful run of the play Adam at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival plus sell-out shows in Stirling, Glasgow, Greenock and Brighton, Adam, who portrayed himself in the play, will be sharing his amazing and harrowing personal story with us.
Adam will be talking about his life growing up as a girl in Egypt, the gender dysphoria he suffered as a child, and the bullying he encountered whilst living in a country in a culture that doesn’t accept LGBT people. You’ll hear about Adam’s journey to the UK, his aim to secure asylum, and his desire to live in the UK and undergo gender reassignment. Adam will talk openly about the depths of despair he plummeted into whilst seeking asylum and being in the wrong body.
Btw – refreshments will be provided but you can bring a bottle too
Pride House is established by LEAP Sports Scotland which is a small charity that is committed to breaking down the structural, social and personal barriers which prevent lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people across the country from accessing, participating and excelling in Scottish sports.
