March Meeting of York Feminist Collective come along and meet other intersectional feminists, plan activist and fundraising events and have a good moan about the patriarchy!
Leeds Queer Film Festival coming up this weekend showing over 50 films with some great looking workshops too. Hoping to head over on Saturday and check it out.
“We are creating a space to showcase queer cinema with a focus on independent and DIY films. We aim to screen films that elevate and prioritise the voices and work of those most marginalised within our queer communities. We also welcome films from queer people that don’t explicitly have a queer focus. We are not for profit and any money raised goes towards supporting queer filmmakers as much as possible and we aim to make the festival as affordable and accessible as we can. The festival is organised by volunteers and is open to newcomers each year.”
Am booked to attend the Feminist Media and Cultural Studies Summer School at Lancaster in May. Looks like it will be a really good week and an opportunity to meet and chat with other people working in my field. The theme is #Genderandcelebrity which will be really interesting for my and my research into celebrity selfies- can’t wait!
Hoping to go to BiCon 2017 an annual educational and social gathering for bi-sexual people which is being held in Leeds this year. Looks like a great range of sessions are planned and they’ve taken steps to try and make it as affordable as possible. Should be a good event, even if I do idenitify as Pan and not Bi!
