Making Liveable Lives

On Oct 7th and 8th 2016, the Liveable Lives project hosts two days of discussions, film screenings and a theatre workshop to understand the ways in which equalities legislation and decriminalization are desired, but also fall short of making lives liveable for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer (LGBTQ) people. Challenging assumptions that 'Global North is better than the Global South' or 'West is best', the event will encourage activists, academics and policy makers to critically explore ways of advancing, charting and mapping ‘progress’ for LGBTQ people in their everyday lives. Presenters include:

 

  • The NGO Sappho for Equality (Kolkata, India) who work with lesbians, bi women and transmen;
  • ILGA (the international organisation that campaigns for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex rights), and;
  • The Liveable Lives Research Team, including Prof. Kath Browne and Dr. Niharika Banerjea
