It is with great pride that LGBT Network Wolverhampton can announce that Peter Tatchell; Human Rights campaigner, hailed as both “A National Hero”i and “One of the most influential gay men of this century”ii, is to become a patron of LGBT Network Wolverhampton. For decades Peter Tatchell has paved the way in the struggle for true equality, championing not only LGBT rights but all human rights.

Peter says “I’m honoured to be patron of LGBT Network Wolverhampton and to support the amazing, important work it does. The network performs a very valuable social service, bringing together the local LGBT community, celebrating its contribution to the city and supporting vulnerable LGBT people. It is a wonderful community asset.”

The patronage of a remarkable individual such as Peter will serve as an ongoing inspiration to the Network’s many volunteers; without whom the vital work of the organisation would not be possible.

“I could not be more thrilled or more proud that someone as courageous and dedicated as Peter Tatchell is choosing to lend his support and to put his internationally respected name to our organisation” – Martha Bishop, LGBT Network General Manager
