Michael Cashman in conversation

Join Worcester College Provost, David Isaac CBE, as he interviews leading role models about their lives and careers.

Michael Cashman, The Lord Cashman CBE, is an actor, politician and LGBT+ rights activist. Born and raised in the East End of London, Michael had a highly successful career as an actor, singer, writer and director, including three years on Eastenders where his character had the first gay kiss in a British soap. He was a founder of LGBT+ rights charity Stonewall and its inaugural Chair, as well as the Labour Party’s LGBT Global Envoy (2014-16).

Lord Cashman was an elected member of the Labour Party National Executive for 12 years, serving as Vice Chair and Chair. He served as Member of the European Parliament for the West Midlands between 1999 and 2014, the same year in which he was raised to the Peerage, taking the title Baron Cashman of Limehouse. In 2022 he was awarded an honorary doctorate from the University of York in recognition of his work for the LGBTQ+ equality and human rights.
