Join the creators of Queer: A Graphic History (‘'Could totally change the way you think about sex and gender' VICE) on an illustrated journey of gender exploration.

We'll look at how gender has been ‘done' differently - from patriarchal societies to trans communities - and how it has been viewed differently - from biological arguments for sex difference to cultural arguments about received gender norms. We'll dive into complex and shifting ideas about masculinity and femininity, look at non-binary, trans and fluid genders, and examine the intersection of experiences of gender with people's race, sexuality, class, disability and more.

Tackling current debates and tensions, which can divide communities and even cost lives, we'll look to the past and the future to ask how might we approach gender differently, in more socially constructive, caring ways.

An exciting new exploration of gender from the creators of the groundbreaking Queer: A Graphic History.
