Who: IFM-SEI, YES and IUSY members aged 18-30 years old

Queer Easter is one of the biggest educational LGBTIQ events in Europe, with the programme looking at all aspects of sexuality and gender experience and theory. Special attention will be paid on this year's Queer Easter to the effects of pop culture on queer subculture and vice versa. How does it come that popular culture is so straight and tends to use queer identities, puns and slurs? And how does queer subculture manage to criticise pop culture while simultaneously relabelling it as their own? This seminar will try to answer these questions and many more. Besides sharing work and lots of political debates, we will not forget to have fun together, self-organised by the participants, as well as spending a day in Berlin. The participation fee is 30-80€ depending on your country.
