Professor Catherine Meads talks about her experience as a Government Advisor on the UK Government Equalities Office LGBT Advisory Panel. She was appointed when it was set up in April 2019. There are currently nine individual appointees and three representatives of LGBT charities – Stonewall, LGBT Foundation and LGBT Consortium. Since it was set up there has been three different Secretaries of State in charge of the Women and Equalities portfolio.
