In this four-part podcast series on Queer Activisms, historians, performers, educators and activists take a deep dive into existence and resistance in queer life – past and present.
In our first episode, Laura Forster is joined by Shay Shay, Tim Other and Dr Fiona Anderson to discuss Queer Joy. Together, these artists, activists and historians talk about performance and community, and how they relate to precarity, gentrification and dispossession. Ranging from 1970s New York to Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK, this episode explores where queer creativity is forged in the margins and considers the importance of taking up space.
Introduced by Marybeth Hamilton | Audio Production: May Robson
