2020 Conference – 2020 Vision: Seeing more queerly

Breaking false binaries in gender and sexuality

Our online conference took place on October 17th 2020.

We hosted the event as a free Zoom meeting – and we have made some of the sessions available on YouTube.

    What are the current legal issues in the UK for trans and other gender diverse people?
    Why should trans people to be able to “self-ID” in many contexts but have to undergo a complex bureaucratic process for gender recognition? What are the implications of the recent government response to the Gender Recognition Act ?
    In this talk, Grey Collier (advocacy director for Liberty, https://www.libertyhumanrights.org.uk/) discusses some of the issues facing trans and gender diverse people in the United Kingdom.

Pre-conference panel discussion

To start unpacking our thinking on the topic, we were delighted to be joined by Alex Clare-YoungRachel Mann, and Jide Macaulay for a panel discussion to address some key questions:

  • What do we mean, and why do we need to see more queerly?
  • What does breaking false binaries mean?
  • What impact will seeing more queerly have on our Christian experiences?
