On 2012 November 9th GALHA hosts a talk by the veteran human-rights campaigner, Peter Tatchell.

Who Peter Tatchell is

He has been a prominent figure in OutRage!, the gay rights group, which has gone out of its way to highlight the hypocricy of today's society. One of the campaigns was through a group FROCS (Faggots Rooting Out Closeted Sexuality), that through its activities showed how contradictory public reactions were, when it came to outing somebody.

Peter Tatchell has the honour of being called a "pervert" by The Sun (extermely right-wing and bigotted newspaper in Britain) after he was one of the people who called for lowering of age of consent laws to 14.

Besides that he also campaigned against hate lyrics in songs, mainly those that call for murder and violence against LGBT people. He publicly and actively works against fascist, nazism, racism, imperialism, and places the fight for gay rights in the broader concept of human rights.
