Stephen Broughton

Stephen Broughton will give a talk about asexuality and the legal grey areas affecting asexual people, including marriage and divorce, hate crime, harassment and bullying, and enforced disclosure.

Stephen is a researcher and learning technologist and at Oxford Brookes University, and he is also an asexual rights campaigner. He co-founded maaple, the Movement for Asexuality Awareness, Protection, Learning and Equality, in response to the lack of awareness of asexuality and the problems faced by asexual spectrum people. Their aims are to raise awareness, promote a more comprehensive sex and relationship education programme in schools and to gain the same legal protections from prejudice as other sexual orientations.
