Talk: Peter Tatchell

  • Portsmouth Grammar School (map)

Join British human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell as he airs his views on free speech and causing offence at this talk in the David Russell Theatre at Portsmouth Grammar School, in conjunction with Portsmouth Festivities 2018.

Are safe space and no-platform policies sensible safeguards or autocratic censorship? Is it ever legitimate to restrict free speech or is free speech inviolable and sacrosanct? Should people be allowed to mock Islam, oppose Trans rights, or dispute the Holocaust?

Tickets are £8.00 for adults or £5.00 for seniors (aged 60 and up), students (with ID), and children (aged 15 and under).
