Finola Brophy, Guest Speaker, Sunday 29th October

Finola Brophy is our guest speaker on 29th October.

Finola lives in Worthing with her partner of nearly 30 years, Liz, though she spends a lot of time and energy in Brighton committed to improving Brighton and Hove’s LGBT+ voluntary and community sector. She identifies as many things including; lesbian, Irish, disabled, feminist, activist, socialist, atheist, cancer survivor, partner, mother, granny… and more. She has a degree and social work qualification, and her goal is to use her skills and experience to help identify unmet needs, to redress balance, and challenge homo/bi/transphobia.

Finola is currently on the Working To Connect management committee, Older and Out advisory group and is the Chair of The Rainbow Chorus which has doubled in size, become a registered charity and become much more inclusive under her leadership. She is active in the development of a national and international LGBT+ choral movement and earlier this year was the first to receive a Golden Handbag Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of her services to the LGBT+ community.
