Gray’s Inn new LGBT+ Society

This year, Gray's Inn became the first of the Inns to have it's own LGBT+ Society. Gray's has long been celebrated as a diverse institution, welcoming students and barristers from around the world. The formation of the LGBT+ Society formalises the openness that is at the heart of the Inn.

 

This episode is guest-hosted by Gwyn Evans and Verity Bell, both committee members of the LGBT+ Society. Tune in to find out more about the Society and why it is so important to celebrate diversity.
