Joey W     He / Him

Workshop Coordinator

  • 561127

I'm Joey, the kind of trans fat the media doesn't warn you to keep out of your diet!

I'm a transgender man on the asexual spectrum and got involved with People's Pride once I realised how unfriendly many pride events were to trans people, neurodivergent people, and other people who should always be welcome at Pride.

 

I'm proud to be a part of People's Pride for local empowerment!

Peter Tatchell     He / Him

Ambassador

  • 561127

A fine gentlemen and award winner on Human rights, the man who turned down knighthoods and is an avid human rights campaigner across 54 years and even has his own Netflix documentary!

Peter Tatchell was born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1952 and has been campaigning since 1967 on issues of human rights, democracy, civil liberties, LGBT equality and global justice.

 

His human rights inspirations include Mahatma Gandhi, Sylvia Pankhurst and Martin Luther King. In 2009, he co-proposed a UN Global Human Rights Index, to measure and rank the human rights record of every country – with the aim of creating a human rights league table to highlight the best and worst countries and thereby incentivise governments to clean up their record and improve their human rights ranking.

In 2021, a documentary about his life, Hating Peter Tatchell, began streaming on Netflix. The same year, he coordinated the first and very successful Reclaim Pride march, which sought to get Pride back to its roots, with corporate sponsorship being replaced by a grassroots community and human rights focus.

This is why we love him and he is our other ambassador of People's Pride Southampton.
