Attend a lecture in the Insights Public Lecture Programme.
Mark Nichols, Northern Pride
Tuesday 20th February, 17:30-18:45
The first Pride march in Britain was in London in 1972; in 1995 Pride on Tyne was established, initially with a low-key university-based celebration. In 2007 Northern Pride replaced it and brought the parade to the city to make it a truly public celebration. This lecture recounts its history, and the obstacles and challenges it faced.

Public lectures at Newcastle University are free and open to all. The aim is to offer a programme that will inform, stimulate, entertain, and excite debate.
Many speakers are leaders in their field and all have something of special interest to convey. The lectures cover a wide range of disciplines and frequently include key contemporary issues, particularly those that affect our daily lives.
Any views expressed by speakers are their own, and do not necessarily reflect the views of Newcastle University.
All lectures are free and open to all, with spaces allocated on a first-come first-served basis. For more popular talks an overspill room will be in operation.
