For this week’s special Pride edition of Conversations Beyond Borders, we’re excited to be joined by writer, campaigner and LinkedIn Changemaker Alexander Leon and journalist and activist with Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants Molly Fleming.

Conversations Beyond Borders is a virtual space for our community to come together, go beyond the headlines and explore ideas worth spreading from our amazing network of speakers.

This week’s conversation will be hosted by Jamie Windust, our guest curator for Pride 2020 and TEDxLondon Director and Curator Maryam Pasha.
