22 March: Join PrideAM for an evening of discussion, debate and drinks hosted by the effervescent Amy Lamé: LGBT superstar, comedian, co-founder of Ducki and London’s first Night Czar!
We'll consider how attitudes towards sexuality have changed over the last 50 years, and what more needs to be achieved to deliver true equality. How has this change in culture been reflected in advertising, and how has representation in advertising impacted our culture?
