Think-In: Speakers
To coincide with the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Sexual Offences Act, the artist invited human rights campaigner, Peter Tatchell (pictured), to address 200 senior leaders in business, culture and policy.

The artist modelled this 'think-in' at the Lloyd's Building on the consciousness-raising pattern pioneered by the Gay Liberation Front in the early 1970s.

Peter Tatchell acknowledged the pioneers of the early LGBT+ movement, and the achievements of the past 50 years, but also highlighted the inequalities that persist under British law.

Martin Firrell outlined an alternative approach to the problem of gender and ballotted participants for their views on the impact of current gender norms on their daily lives.

The results of the ballot were published as
The World Is Divided by a Gender War Designed to Keep Us at Loggerheads. Gender Is a Myth. It Does Not Really Exist.
