Marriage Equality and Other Surprises

Sun 8 Sep, 11.30am

MWF19’s Queermotions series looks at six emotional states – anger, fear, disgust, happiness, sadness and surprise – through an LBGTQI+ lens.

From Stonewall to marriage equality, Quinn Eades, Todd Fernando and Val McDermid discuss the highs and lows in queer liberation over the last few decades, and what surprises we're yet to see. With Daniel Santangeli.

Update to previously advertised information: Peter Waples-Crowe no longer appears in this event.
