The Village Metropolitan Community Church is excited to be hosting Lloyd Russell-Moyle as our guest speaker for our Pride service on Sunday, 5th August 2018
Lloyd was born and went to school in Brighton and Lewes and studied at the Universities of Bradford and Sussex studying Peace Studies, Conflict Resolution and International Law.
He was Vice-President of the European Youth Forum in Brussels and has a background in Youth Work.
Whilst a serving local councillor in East Brighton he was elected as a Labour & Co-operative MP to serve Brighton Kemptown in June 2017.
In parliament he is a prominent member of the International Development Select Committee, he chairs the All Party Parliamentary Group on Youth Affairs and is the Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Shadow Justice Minister.
Rev. Michael Hydes, senior pastor at The Village MCC said, “I am thrilled that the honourable member of parliament for Kemptown and Peacehaven, Lloyd Russell-Moyle, will be our Pride service keynote speaker this year.
I can’t believe it’s been over a year since the general election. However, although I was excited to see that Lloyd was one of eight LGBT community members voted into office, it was his value set that thrilled me the most.
He is a man with a heart for equality and justice. He has publicly condemned the government’s policies on arms exports to countries such as Saudi Arabia for use in the conflict in Yemen, and supported schemes that speak to helping those on the margins. He’s a local lad, (no disrespect meant but at 32 he’s a lad compared to me) and I can’t think of anyone more qualified to talk about Pride in our community.”
