It’s very reparative and healing to be connected on a physical, psychological and spiritual level with our queer community through the generations. To be able to do this in Russia, for example, or Palestine or in Uganda with my friends there who are challenging the latest tyranny. Highly informative, witty, candid and steeped in historical detail, Dan Glass serves as the bobbin in the weaving process of herstories, bringing you an immersive reading experience which makes necessary the act of radical love.

The conversation will be chaired by performer, activist and Queer Tours of London – A Mince Through Time guide, Dani Dinger. You can get immediate notification on the availability of an event podcast by following LSE public lectures and events on Twitter, which will also inform you about the posting of transcripts and videos, the announcement of new events and other important event updates. Queer Footprints is also a celebration on the 50th anniversary of the first Pride protests in Britain.A brand spanking new lez-fest from the powerhouses behind Resis’dance, Faggamuffin Bloc Party and Goldsnap: Gin and Mica. This groundbreaking guide will take you through the city streets to uncover the scandalous, hilarious and empowering events of London’s queerstory. Q: In the book’s introduction you stress the importance of movement, walking and taking up the space, of engaging with history rather than just reading about it. NOTCHES is a collaborative and international history of sexuality blog that aims to get people inside and outside the academy thinking about histories of sex and sexualities in the past and in the present across regions, periods and themes.

Protest movement; queer, black joy from Candy Bar and ‘black and gay back in the day’ and lessons from Dean Street wellbeing services which advanced sexual healthcare across London. This is no self-important history lesson that starts somewhere in the past and leads you date by date to the present.Glass represents a vital link between the important activists who helped shape the world we live in and those who would shape the future and is a charming, knowledgeable and amenable tour guide. Also, Paulo Freire’s book Pedagogy of Hope says that we continually have to sculpt hope in our lives and our movements.
