February Schedule

It is LGBT History Month, so I’ll be rather busy. On the off-chance that some of you might be daft enough to want to attend one of my talks, of just catch up, here’s where you can find me.

Saturday 7th (14:30) – “A Potted History of Gender Variance” at the M-Shed (in which I intend to show that the much-vaunted gender binary is something of an aberration in human history).

Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th – I’ll be at the National LGBT History Festival in Manchester. On Sunday at around 11:00 I’ll be giving a paper: “Their-stories: Interrogating gender identities from the past”.

Monday 16th (18:00) – The Bristol University Student’s Union Festival of Liberation is hosting “How do we make the Women’s Movement Intersectional?” I’ll be there if I get back from Manchester in time, and maybe dropping in on BristolCon Fringe (John Hawkes-Reed & Stark Holborn) if I can get away in time.

Thursday 19th (18:00) – I’m hosting a book launch at Foyles, Cabot Circus. This is for The Ship by Antonia Honeywell, which is proving a very interesting read.

Wednesday 25th (18:00) – Back at the University, the Festival of Liberation asks, “What Next for the LGBT+ Movement Following the Passing of the Same Sex Marriage Act?”. I’m on the panel, as if Daryn Carter of Bristol Pride.

Thursday 26th (19:15) – I’m reprising the history of gender variance talk at Bath University.

Friday 27th – I’m giving a lunchtime trans awareness talk at a Bristol hospital. Then in the evening I’ll be at Josie McLellan’s “Glad to be Gay Behind the Wall” – 19:00 start at Roll for the Soul.

Saturday 28th (14;00) – Out Stories Bristol will be hosting “Opening Our New Chapter”, a launch event from some new local LGBT history projects at Hamilton House in the People’s Republic of Stokes Croft.
