Watch now

Hannah Ayres delivers an accessible talk introducing events and individuals from her research through the lens of trans history. You may recognise some individuals, like Joan of Arc and Sylvia Riviera, though we hope to shed a light on some lesser known events and individuals too.

"What makes queer history popular, I think, is not so much the idea of a continuous past of which we are part, but the acknowledgement that we are different, and yet can still find startling moments of identity that highlight our common human aspirations across the chasm of time." Jeffrey Weeks, 2012:539

Decolonisation and Decriminalisation as Queer Liberation

27th July, 3-4:30pm

Queer liberation is a multi-faceted cause which needs an understanding of nuance and interlocking oppressions.

This session focuses on how the broad need for decolonisation and the specific need for decriminalising queer identity are part of the same struggle for equity and justice. Participants will be introduced to the history and ongoing campaigns for these issues, before being provided a platform to create their own spaces and responses.

It will be led by Ibtisam Ahmed, a queer academic and activist of colour whose work is based on decolonial utopianism, and who has campaigned on this matter directly at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings, the University of Nottingham Students' Union, and Nottinghamshire Pride.
