In this talk, Paul Johnson (Professor of Sociology, University of York) draws upon oral history interviews conducted with LGBT people who have challenged discrimination in the UK by making applications to the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).

Within this, the impact of history and current social contexts will be explored. Overall, the talk will highlight what connects ‘people like us’ across time and space.
