Panel Discussion: Queer

published on 5 October 2018

SHOWstudio’s editor Mimma Viglezio and Queer academic Jake Hall co-chair our Queer Panel Discussion, as Lewis G Burton, Rhea Dillon, Jamie Windust and Nakhane cover the evolution of the term. Spawning from the reclamation of a slur, ‘queer’ now stands as an umbrella term for anyone who identifies outside of the heteronormative ideal. Disrupting gender binaries and societally-enforced aesthetics, the panellists find a safe space in their queerness.
