Over the last half a century, Pride as an event has not only become a commonplace within LGBT activism but has also transformed tremendously over time.

In this event, the panel will reflect on the politics of Pride parades in the post-covid world.

How does queer liberation fit within contemporary pride events? How do we as a queer community engage with the commercialisation of our identities and the corporate sponsorship of Pride parades?

How do we recover from the impacts of COVID on queer lives and reclaim public space and visibility of queer lives?

Speakers:

  • Dr Francesca Romana Ammaturo (Roehampton)
  • Dr Olimpia Burchiellaro (Westminster)
  • Dr Koen Slootmaeckers (City)
