QUEERING BROOKLYN: Exploring Queer and Trans Realities in the County of Kings
TUESDAY, APRIL 27, 2010
12 noon - 8 pm
Brooklyn College Student Center, 7th Floor Penthouse
FREE and open to the public.
As Brooklyn College celebrates its first year housing CUNY's first and only LGBTQ Studies program, the BC Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Alliance is proud to present QUEERING BROOKLYN: Exploring Queer and Trans Realities in the County of Kings.
On April 27, 2010, students, scholars, and local community members will come together to address issues that affect the lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, transgender, and gender-non-conforming communities in Brooklyn. The conference will include presentations, panels, film, and performance art examining topics of immigration, police and interpersonal violence and community response, queer and trans youth in the public education system, and more.
We present this day of scholarship, art, and dialogue to assert that even at a time when public institutions such as CUNY are under attack and our national LGBTQ agenda leaves so many behind, we as students and New Yorkers will continue to strive toward a broader vision, conversation, and representation of our communities. In this vein, QUEERING BROOKLYN is free and open to the public.
