Event description

Description

The third edition of the ‘Queer’ Asia conference brings together academics, activists, policy makers, donors and artists to talk about contemporary challenges facing LGBTI people in Asia and the diaspora. The theme of the conference this year is 'Bodies X Borders.'

As migration, war, and crisis impact queer bodies we ask: how do they move and survive in the numerous and varied Asian contexts? How do race, gender, ability, religion, class/caste impact queer Asian bodies? Can queer bodies transgress (internal and external) borders imposed by politics, economy, science, and religion? How do crises around nationalism and globalisation affect non-normative gender and sexual identities?


Keynote: 26 June 2018 (5:30 pm)
