Queering Femininity is a national conference to explore and celebrate the many ways queers consciously construct femininity. Conference programming will examine the impacts of gender, age, class, race, etc., on the lives and communities of people who identify as feminine and queer. Please join us to share information, network, build community, present research, or simply be inspired and have fun! The conference will take place May 27 - 30, 2005 (Memorial Day weekend) in Seattle. We are actively seeking proposals for workshops and panels.
Confirmed presenters for Queering Femininity include keynote speaker Minnie Bruce Pratt, Dossie Easton, Laura Harris, Emi Koyama, Veronica Monet, Shar Rednour and Annie Sprinkle. In addition to workshops, panels, and presentations, the conference will include a spoken word performance, cabaret, play party, art show, and vendor fair.
Queering Femininity is open to anyone interested in the lives of feminine-identified people in relation to queer, lesbian, bisexual, dyke and trans communities, and is a trans-friendly event. For more information please visit http://www.femmeconference.org or write to:
