LGBTQ+ History Month: LGBTQ+: Queer Matters for everyone’

Events — Talk & Interactive Session Online
23 February 2021, 12:00

Why do LGBTQ+ issues matter to everyone? In what ways do the changing understandings of gender and sexuality impact lived experience? What are some recent changes to knowledge? How is LGBTQ+ celebration essential for an ethical world?
 
In this highly interactive session we will explore and discuss the changing terminologies and understandings of gender and sexuality and how these affect every individual in positive ways. After a brief introduction to what queer means in contemporary life students will be asked to engage with and discuss aspects of LGBTQ+ culture, including making our thinking about gender norms more complex.
