YPFoI: Language and Representation Within LGBT+ Culture

Wed 22 February 2017,

February is LGBT+ History Month and M Shed have invited us to team up with Freedom Youth Bristol to bring you our second event of 2017. This time, we’re looking at the significance of language and representation in LGBT+ culture – past, present and future.

Are we being taught enough about LGBT+ issues and culture both within school and the wider world?
Are LGBT+ stories fairly represented within the media?
And how can we improve the language we use to talk about these issues?

Join us to discuss how we can address these questions when the cultural landscape and the language we use is constantly changing.

Panel members to be announced soon.

Young People’s Festival of Ideas is a series of debates on critical issues affecting young people today. Brought to you by an event partnership between Bristol Festival of Ideas, Rising Arts Agency and Arnolfini, the event is open to all. Please note that audience data is shared amongst the named partners.

With a panel of high profile speakers, you can expect debates, laughter and lots of free thinking.
