As part of Queer Ontario’s 10th anniversary celebrations, York University Professor Nick Mulé and Queer Ontario are partnering to launch a digital exhibition titled Queer Liberation Theory Project Study: Canadian Interviews through Dissident Voices Productions.
Taking place on Sunday, Oct. 27 from 2 to 5 p.m. at the ArQuives (34 Isabella St., Toronto), the exhibition will feature the full and unedited interviews from Mulé’s documentary QueerEdge: From Gay to Queer Liberation. Academics, activists and artists with a queer liberation sensibility in the Toronto and Ottawa areas will gather to discuss the values of gay liberation and how they relate to the queer liberation perspectives of today.
This free event will include light refreshments, snacks and beverages. All are welcome to attend.
Visit the QueerEdge website and view the QueerEdge trailer to learn more about the film.
Nick J. Mulé is the co-ordinator of York’s Sexuality Studies program and an associate professor in York’s School of Social Work, cross-appointed to the Faculty of Health and the School of Gender, Sexuality & Women’s Studies. He is the principal investigator of the Social Sciences & Humanities Research Council-funded research study “Queer Liberation Theory: Resurrection and Development.” He directed, wrote and executive produced the feature documentary QueerEdge: From Gay to Queer Liberation. He is also the founder, past Chair and current secretary of Queer Ontario.
Queer Ontario is a provincial network of gender and sexually diverse individuals – and their allies – who are committed to questioning, challenging and reforming the laws, institutional practices and social norms that regulate queer people. Operating under liberationist and sex-positive principles, Queer Ontario fights for accessibility, recognition, and pluralism, using social media and other tactics to engage in political action, public education and coalition-building.
This event is co-sponsored by: the ArQuives, York’s Centre for Feminist Research, York’s Robarts Centre for Canadian Studies and the Sexuality Studies program at York University.
