Generations of Queer
A conversation about what cross-generational dialogue does, and what it could do betterPresented by queerspace
Duration: 3 hours inc. post-panel refreshments and informal discussion
This panel arose from conversations at queerspace about the ways different queer generations speak to each other, and how it is possible to understand each other across those differences, even perhaps because of them.
Now, queerspace has initiated a wider conversation, inviting queer activists from across the generations to turn their attention together to what generational dialogue does, and what it could do better.

"To live without history is to live like an infant, constantly amazed and challenged by a strange and unnamed world. There is a deep wonder in this kind of existence, a vitality of curiosity and a sense of adventure that we do well to keep alive all of our lives. But a people who are struggling against a world that has decreed them obscene need a stronger bedrock beneath their feet." – Joan Nestle, A Restricted Country, 1987
