Gay Sex and the Disappearing City

Gay Sex and the Disappearing City

This event has finished Took place on: Sunday, 17th Nov 2019

‘Gay Sex and the Disappearing City’ is a performance of two readers and viola da gamba that explores the ways in which our cities have provided queer folk spaces to explore sex, intimacy and belonging.

Covering a wide range of topics that impact the LGBTQ+ community, it will also look at opportunities for political organising, and how gentrification, increasing living costs, and property speculation are endangering those spaces and, consequently, limiting our opportunities to experiment with queer forms of sociability and world-making.

Drawing from autobiography, historical sources, texts by early Gay Liberation activists, and fieldwork notes collected in gay clubs and darkrooms in Berlin, this event asks how new generations of LGBTQ+ folk might discover intimacy and community at a time when hook-up apps and property speculation have made queer sex increasingly secretive.

This event is suitable for those 18 years and over.

Part of the Being Human festival of the humanities 14-23 November.

Cost: Free of Charge
