LGBT in the Family

FFLAG was invited to Herbert Smith Freehill (HSF)’s ‘LGBT in the Family’ panel event, part of their recent Global Diversity and Inclusion Week. Trustee Sorrel Atkinson and son Jolyon were asked to be on panel along with Tuvia Borok co-founder of P3:Proud.Professional.Parents and Dario Parente trustee of New Family Social. Jill Chung, co-chair of HSF’s LGBT network chaired the event. This was the first joint event that HSF LGBT and Family Networks had ever hosted.


It was an excellent event with lively and interesting exchanges of experiences – from being a parent of a gay son, a son’s coming out story, the experiences of being a gay dad and how supportive and aware schools are of the different family backgrounds of their pupils. The Q and A session was followed by lots of conversations with individuals sharing their own stories.

A huge thank you to all at HSF for their hospitality and for making it such a memorable evening.
