Academic week – Sexual Cultures Conference and Trans* Health Workshop

I've already posted about the Sexual Cultures Conference - this is now just a few days away! I'm greatly looking forward to sitting on one of the conference's keynote panels on the first day with Jay Stewart (Gendered Intelligence), Jade Fernandez (Stonewall) and Kat Gupta.

The overarching theme of the conference (and, by extension, the panel) is "academic meets activism". I'm planning to talk about my move into academia from activism and my involvement in events such as the Emergence of Trans seminar series and Spotlight on: Genderqueer that attempted to speak to both academia and activism. I'll be aiming to highlight some of the limitations and drawbacks of such events as well as their strengths, and think about how future organisers might be able to build upon these lessons.

The whole programme for Sexual Cultures is fascinating, and I'll certainly be dropping by as many sessions as possible. However, I'll also be popping out for a few hours on Thursday to attend a Trans* Health Workshop at King's College London. At this event, I'm planning to speak about some of the early findings from my PhD research, including reflections on the emergence and evolution of 'trans' narratives and their intersection with medical discourse.

Being trans and LGBQ: a panel discussion

On Thursday 26th February I will be speaking about the relationship between trans identity/experience and sexual orientation at UCL.

"When LGBQ trans people can be excluded and marginalised by both transphobia in LGBQ spaces and homo-, bi- and lesbophobia in trans spaces, how do we live all these aspects of our identities? How do our communities manage or fail to meet our needs, and how can we and they change this? There will be an opportunity for questions and contributions from the floor.

Speakers:
Ruth Pearce, activist, academic and musician
Jack Marr, poet and speculative fiction writer
Nardina Kaur, academic and member of Sarbat
Naith Payton, writer and reporter for Pink News
Surat Shaan Rathgeber Knan, founder of Rainbow Jews
Gabriella Basso Ricci, postgraduate student and freelance translator
Daniel Fernando Diaz-Cebreiro, undergraduate student, activist and LGBT Representative on NUS Black Students' Campaign committee

The venue is wheelchair-accessible. All welcome - no need to be a UCL student! If you have any questions or comments, please contact uclu-lgbt.officer@ucl.ac.uk."

The event will take place in the Harrie Massey Lecture Theatre from 6pm.
