Peter Tatchell

Peter Tatchell has been campaigning for human rights, democracy, LGBT freedom and global justice since 1967.

He is a member of the queer human rights group OutRage!, and the left-wing of the Green Party.

Through the Peter Tatchell Foundation, he campaigns for human rights in Britain and internationally.

A summary of his motives, morality and methods is here:

Peter’s key political inspirations are Mahatma Gandhi, Sylvia Pankurst, Martin Luther King and, to some extent, Malcolm X and Rosa Luxemberg. He has adapted many of their methods to his contemporary non-violent struggle for human rights – and invented a few of his own.
