What does the word queer mean? What kind of narratives are we used to seeing in film, TV, books and the media, and why might these be unhelpful in understanding ourselves and each others’ identities? Why should we queer these narratives and how can we?

This talk will include the screening of two documentary trailers (including The Gay Word) produced by Amy Ashenden, a former University of Southampton student and video journalist at the Evening Standard.
