Join us for a day of meeting fellow conservatives, parliamentarians, and high profile speakers.

Taking place at a central London venue (that will be sent to ticket holders), our inaugural conference will focus on issues such as how public services like schools and the NHS consider LGBT+ people, ending discrimination, improving gender recognition, and advancing international LGBT+ rights.
