About this Event
Martin Bowley, QC, was called to the Bar in 1962. He served as a Recorder from 1979 to 1988 when he had to stand down after being outed by the Sun newspaper. Since then he’s been a passionate advocate for gay rights and supported the campaign group Stonewall from its earliest days. In the late 1990s, he served on a government committee which led to the reform of the UK’s sexual offences legislation.
Martin will be in conversation with Paul Seagrove, University of Cambridge’s News Communications Manager, who previously worked as a BBC broadcast journalist and Press and PR Manager at British Antarctic Survey.
