Recent advances in ‘equality’ have seen an explosion of pride within the LGBT community but what has been gained and what has been lost by insisting that we are proud to be gay?
In this day-long symposium we will cast light on contemporary manifestations of the relations between shame and stigma, exposure, conformity and power.
This event is convened by Jordan McKenzie, Associate Lecturer, BA Drawing
Camberwell College of Arts, and Akosua Bonsu (Fringe Centre, UCL).
