MONDAY 17th February: The Ageing Queer populations of London
(7pm, The Boardroom, 309 Regent Street)
This panel discussion will explore the challenges, opportunities and difficulties facing London’s ageing queer populations. How do older queer populations experience London and how do they read it differently? In part, the event will also consider how soap operas offer a frame through which London’s ageing queer populations might understand the city and its issue. Speakers for the event include Kate Hancock (Opening Doors London), Dr. Nicola Humberstone and others (tbc).
TUESDAY 18th February: University of Westminster Queer Film Night screens Touch of Pink (2004), followed by a Q&A with director Ian Iqbal Rashid.
(7pm, New Lecture Theatre, 4-12 Little Titchfield Street, *Please note that this event is in a different building*)
FRIDAY 21st February: London’s Queer Literatures
(7pm, Room 451, 309 Regent Street )
For this event we will be joined by a number of writers whose work engages intricately with the relationship between London and queerness, all of who will be reading from their work. We’re excited to welcome Jonathan Kemp (London Triptych, The Penetrated Male Body), Neil McKenna (Fanny and Stella, The Secret Life of Oscar Wilde) and others (tbc).
The reading will be followed by a wine reception.
