A leading human-rights campaigner will appear at an equality event.

Peter Tatchell will speak at We Don’t Talk About That, held at the Brighton Thistle Hotel in King’s Road tomorrow.

Mr Tatchell has praised East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service and the Asian Fire Service Association for organising what he described as a timely and valuable conference to address the “often neglected issues” of equality, diversity, racism, homophobia and prejudice.

Places are limited for the event but anyone interested should contact Pride@esfrs.org to register.
