In just under an hour I’m giving a talk to a local university for LGBT+ History month and I’m somewhat nervous. Could you please send me positive vibes?
Of course! I’m sure you’ll do well! Sending you lots of love and light!
From looking at the time, I bet you’re giving the talk right now, @IrisW- sending lots of positive energy and encouragement your way as you stand in the spotlight!
That is so amazing of you to give the talk for LGBT+ History month, what a great thing to do! I am sure the students and all those attending will enjoy your talk as I know you will put your heart and soul into it
Good luck and many blessings, Iris!
Thank you both. It went really well!
OOh, that’s great! I’m so proud of you!
I’m sorry I missed this, I would send you all the light you need, but it sounds like you did a great job! I’m very happy for you to be able to do public speaking on the topic at the University. Great job!
So glad to hear it went well, @IrisW- congrats to you on your successful talk!
Congratulations @IrisW!! Now I’m curious, what were the topics? I’d love to learn more about LGBT+ history!
Sorry I didn’t see this before you gave your talk, but I am sending high vibes your way anyway. I’m so glad it went well!
I should have said!
The talk was for the Law School at the University. As many of you know I’m a Solicitor (Lawyer). I’m also a committee member of The Law Society’s LGBT+ Lawyers Division. So the talk was about my experiences of being out in the profession, my work with the committee and the Pride in the Law report that was published last year resulting from a survey on LGBT+ solicitors and our allies’ experiences in the profession. So more really a history of me and current approaches to effecting change.
I’m been a qualified solicitor for 15 years now and much has changed from an equality and diversity point of view in that time but I know some of my fellow lawyers are still struggling with prejudice and homophobia.
15 years, wow! Congratulations! and I’m glad that progress is being made and that you don’t have to be in the closet in your everyday job. Cheers!
