I’ve just returned home from a book tour to support Against Equality: Queer Revolution, Not Mere Inclusion in Australia and New Zealand. The tour passed through Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland, Wellington, and Dunedin over seven weeks. I was hosted by amazing folks from student groups and bookshops that were inspiring and rejuvenating. A full tour recap is available on the AE website.
From April 15th-17th I will head out on a short three day book tour in upstate New York stopping in Poughkeepsie, Buffalo, and Rochester. Thanks to the Queer Coalition of Vassar College, Burning Books, and Rochester Red & Black for hosting and Jake Allen for bottom lining so much of the organizing. Click here for event details!
While in Australia I also gave a public lecture at the University of Melbourne and a master class at LaTrobe University focusing on my paper, Revisiting AIDS and Its Metaphors. Many thanks to Fran Martin and Carol D’Cruz for their gracious support and inviting me to their respective universities.
While I hope to cut down on future travel this year, I will still be going to The Canadian Sexuality Studies Association conference as part of the 2015 Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences from June 1st-3rd in Ottawa. Along side collective members Karma Chávez and Yasmin Nair, I will be presenting on Against Equality’s work.
