Workshop: Working Class LGBTQ People in Film and TV

September 21, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Beginning with clips from TV and film, we examine how LGBTQ working-class identities have been demonised, patronised, and romanticised onscreen, before considering representation we would like to see in future. We will also think about how cultural venues can be made more welcoming to working-class people.

This workshop is for working-class people (background and/or current situation) and allies. Although interactive, there is no pressure to actively participate in discussion. It is run by two working-class femme lesbians who navigate middle-classness via their work. Leanne Dawson is a lecturer at University of Edinburgh and Laura Wylie is completing a Masters in sexuality and class at University of Stirling.

Suitable for ages 15+.

ACCESS: Space on ground floor with level access throughout. Accessible toilet available. BSL interpretation for event.
