A Brief History of Drag

Join us as we explore the history of cross-dressing, drag and performance intent on queering gender expression. We will delve into the vast array of genres in which drag has appeared, investigate drag kings, queens, things, bio queens and creature drag and discuss the future of the art form given its meteoric rise.

Exploring Gender through Art

For LGBT Pride Month we will be hosting a lecture on Exploring Gender through contemporary art. In this session we will focus on artists who have radically transformed the way sexuality and gender are portrayed in art, challenging what was once deemed to be taboo topics and confronting the viewers to revaluate their preconceptions.
