Tracing the queer past + surviving its present + future in the ‘Cruising the Past’ workshop at LUX Moving Image, Aug 13

10 August 2017

Fiona Anderson and Laura Guy are presenting the ‘Cruising the Past’ at London’s LUX Moving Image on August 13.

The one-day workshop will explore “cruising as a method for tracing the queer past and surviving in the present and future,” and is part of the summer-long program at LUX-titled ‘CRUISING GROUND. CRUISING GROUND.’ It brings together a disparate set of queer perspectives through screenings, workshops and events to engage with the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act 1967: which “decriminalised private homosexual acts between two men over the age of twenty-one.”

Anderson and Guy, who lecture at Newcastle University and Glasgow School of Art, respectively, are holding the event to draw on their research into ‘queer social and sexual cultures.’ The program is developed in collaboration with Cruising the Seventies: Unearthing Pre-HIV/AIDS Queer Sexual Cultures (CRUSEV).
