19-21 Queer Media Activism – workshop

What is ‘Queer Media’ and what is ‘Media Activism’? In many queer political scenes there are sometimes limited ways in which people feel they can express political activism when in fact there are many different mediums that can be used and ways of approaching politics and being an activist. A part of why queer media is important to look at is because there are so many ways in which we do not see ourselves as queer people reflected in the media around us, and the fact of making our own media, creating new and empowered images/reflections of ourselves and having control over how we are shown in media are forms of activism and self empowerment. This Queer Media Activism workshop is about creating a conversation looking at political communities and media arts, showing the connections and wide range of possibilities in which people can be expressive and engage in meaningful queer media as a form of activism.

The queer transfestival will be in Gothenburg, Sweden on May 14th. It will be a day (and night) filled with art, music, performances, workshops, activism, politics and party! We would love to show your art (sketches, videos, or anything else), porn, or play your music if it has some kind of connection to queer and trans.  Pleas e-mail us your ideas, or digital copies of your work if it’s something that we can print/play/screen.

We are also looking for reports of what’s going on that is queer and trans from all over the world, anything that you know of where you live! There will be a world map with queer and trans things at the festival for people to find other groups and events.

E-mail us at queertransfestival at gmail com

And welcome to Gothenburg in May! (The queer transfestival is one day, but will be in connection with the LGBT-festival in Gothenburg May 12-17).
