Please join us on TUESDAY 17 October in the Judges’ Dining Room at the Central Criminal Courtr, Old Bailey for a very special LGBT+ Network event celebrating Black History Month and the pre-launch of Purple Reign Phase II with celebrated photographer Leonora Saunders.

This event is hosted by our patron Tim Hailes, MD and Associate General Counsel, JP Morgan and recently elected as Sheriff of the City of London, the first openly LGBT+ person to hold the position since it’s inception in 1066 A.D.

We will have an exhibition featuring photographs from Purple Reign Phase I by Thomas Knights, as well as a preview of some new portraits on display for the first time.

Our panel discussion will focus on the intersectionality of BAME and LGBT+ featuring:

Tim Hailes, Sheriff of the City of London, MD and Assistant General Counsel, JP Morgan

Olivette Cole Wilson, Only BAME Founder of Stonewall, Actress & Expert in LGBT+ Families and Adoption, Barnardo’s
