Executive Director of Kaleidoscope Trust, Co-Founder UK Black Pride

Phyll Opoku-Gyimah is the executive director of Kaleidoscope Trust, an organisation working towards the liberation of LGBT+ people around the world. Widely known as Lady Phyll – partly due to her decision to reject an MBE in the New Year’s Honours' list to protest Britain’s role in formulating anti-LGBT+ penal codes across its empire – she is the nucleus and co-founder of the award-winning celebration and protest that is UK Black Pride which is for LGBTQ people of African, Aisan, Caribbean, Latin American, Middle Eastern heritage; she is a community builder and organiser; an Albert Kennedy Trust patron, and a public speaker focusing on race, gender, sexuality and class. She's regularly called upon to advise nascent LGBTQ+ organisations around the world to help leaders create cogent organising strategies, establish robust partnership networks and work effectively in service of the LGBT+ community.
