On this page you can find details of all our future events! The majority of our events are online, and those that aren't will be done in a hybrid way.
The aim of these events is to offer you a chance to learn more about queer lives, research, and understanding. We collaborate with a number of groups and individuals to help us put these events on and together we hope to bring you the most up-to-date and topical content.
If you ever miss our events, we try to record a large of these and you can catch up via our Youtube.
We hope to see you soon!

As part of Daniel Lismore's Be Yourself; Everyone Else Is Already Taken programme of events gratefully supported City of Culture Coventry 2021 and Herbert Art Gallery & Museum.
Artist and academic Daniel Fountain will give a talk about the significant role that fashion and craft has for expressing queer identities. Taking Daniel Lismore's 'living sculptures' as inspiration, Fountain will give an overview of work by various counter-cultural figures throughout contemporary history who have paved the way for us to 'be ourselves'.
