About Peter Tatchell

Peter Tatchell has one of the most impressive political activist resumes around. He’s been fighting for human rights for 50 years, with no end in sight. He tells his 70K Twitter followers, “Don’t accept the world as it is. Dream of what the world could be - then help make it happen.” From protesting neo-Nazis in Moscow to attempting a citizen’s arrest of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, Peter’s protests, many of which specifically advocate for LGBTQ+ rights, have led to his arrest over 300 times. There is no obstacle too large, or consequence too severe, to stop Peter in his quest for a better, and more equal, tomorrow.
