The Michael Dillon Lecture series: Maggi Hambling CBE


Following the inaugural online lecture we are delighted to announce the launch of a new flagship University of Oxford in-person lecture series, The Michael Dillon LGBT+ Lectures, which will be hosted at St Anne’s. The series, which is named in honour of St Anne’s alumnus, Michael Dillon – the first person known to have medically transitioned from female to male in the UK – will be at the centre of the University’s commitment to its LGBT+ community and will “help to shape the national and international conversation about LGBT+ issues”. The lectures will be held twice annually and will be given by prominent LGBT+ individuals from outside of academia who have attained positions of outstanding achievement in their fields.
