Gayness In Queer Times Conference

Besi Besemar May 19, 2019

Tickets are now available for the Gayness In Queer Times Conference.

ON June 13 and 14 the University of Brighton will be hosting a one-off two day conference about gayness. While not denying the power and importance of queerness or the diversity and unity of LGBTQ, the organisers want to use this conference to have conversations about where ‘gay’ stands today.

Attendees can expect discussions on gay culture, history, sex, politics, art, identities, and more!

The conference’s keynote speech will be delivered by the world-famous Prof David Halperin (University of Minnesota), author of the groundbreaking studies of gay male culture What Do Gay Men Want? and How To Be Gay.

The two-day conference will be hosted by the University of Brighton’s Centre for Transforming Sexuality & Gender, and the Centre for Applied Politics, Philosophy & Ethics.

Organisers are keen to encourage people of all sexualities and genders to attend and to join in the discussions, particularly those from outside the university with a special reduced rate of £10 available for attendees without any funding.
