Video: The 'Other Heroes' exhibition
Pinsent Masons was delighted to have been able to commission Robert Taylor to take portraits of an important group of people from the LGBT community as part of our celebration of LGBT History Month 2017.
The subjects were people who have contributed to LGBT history but aren't the "usual suspects". They are the modest ones who simply get on and change views about how the LGBT community is seen. The subjects include artists, activists, parliamentarians and a poet.
The exhibition confirms Pinsent Masons' long-standing commitment to diversity and especially their support for LGBT equality. They were the first law firm to join Stonewall's Diversity Champions programme and the first law firm in the Stonewall WEI. This year they maintained their position as the top law firm in the WEI and were placed second overall in Engalnd, Wales and Scotland.
David Isaac, the Chair of the firm's Diversity Steering Group (and also the Chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission) said "We are very proud of the firm's commitment to diversity and this exhibition is one of a number of regular initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion in both the City and the legal sector. We are delighted to have worked with Robert to create 'Other Heroes'. The portraits identify an important group of people whose contribution we were keen to acknowledge."
The photographs are currently on display at Doughty Street Chambers.
