Gender Performed: a conversation about sex, gender, theatre & politics

*Might be of interest to any of you thinking about gender performativity, sexuality, and fashion / Definitely an example of some of the issues we have been discussing*

Is what you wear political? How does being “girly” get defined? What’s liberating and limiting about sex and gender?

Join us at the second Thinking Out Loud conversation presented by Concordia University and The Globe and Mail.

Monday, February 16, 2015

  • 6:30 p.m. – doors open | 7 p.m. – 8:15 p.m. – conversation | A book signing will follow
  • D.B. Clarke Theatre, 1455 De Maisonneuve Blvd. W., Montreal

Irish drag queen and gay rights activist Panti Bliss first made headlines in January 2014, when she called out several media stars for being homophobic. Shortly after, Emer O’Toole, assistant professor in the School of Canadian Irish Studies, invited Bliss to Concordia to speak about her experiences and activism.

In this conversation, Bliss will join O’Toole on stage to discuss how what we wear can reflect much more than personal style and fashion.

The conversation will be moderated by journalist Erin Anderssen of The Globe and Mail.
