Feminism & Queerdom

Posted on May 13, 2011 by


QTC had another great discussion focusing on feminism and queerdom with more than a dozen participants. Topics included the connection between women’s rights and queer rights. Shaun Bartone pointed out that he was banned from the Provincial Building because he was a queer, but he was targeted as a queer at a Legislative hearing on the cancelling of the Advisory Council on the Status of Women. Consequently, at the Int’l Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO) , Shaun was forced to stand on the sidewalk opposite the Legislature in order to participate at all.

The Queer Theory Collective will present a round-table discussion exploring the issues of feminism and queerdom on Tuesday, May 17, from 7-10 PM at the Gallery Connexion, 440 York Street, Fredericton. The workshop called “Feminism and Queerdom: where do they meet? where do they clash?” is being presented and moderated by Debi Menescus. This is the first in a series of workshops on the subject.
