2023 Visiting Professor Equality Diversity and Inclusion Series





Andrew King is Professor of Sociology and Head of the Department of Sociology at the University of Surrey, Guildford, UK. He is an expert on LGBTQ+ inequalities across the life course, although the majority of his research has focused on the lives and experiences of older LGBTQ+ people. He has focused recent research on housing and LGBTQ+ people, with ground-breaking studies and impact activities around those living in social housing as well as the concerns many older LGBTQ+ people have where they live later in life. Andrew worked with LGBTQ+ communities, support organisations and housing providers to develop the UK’s first LGBTQ+ social housing equality framework, the HouseProud Pledge Scheme. Alongside his LGBTQ+ focused research, Andrew is Co-Director of the Centre for Research on Ageing and Generations (CRAG), the Sex, Gender and Sexualities (SGS) Research Group at Surrey and an associate editor of the journals Ageing and Society and Sociology.
