What needs to be done to defend the most vulnerable in our communities?
Almost five years after publishing his Quarterly Essay 'Moral Panic 101' – as well as the marriage equality “Yes” vote – writer Benjamin Law regathers with activists, parents and policy-makers to identify where the new anti-queer culture wars are located – and what needs to be done to defend the most vulnerable in our communities?
About Queer Thinking
Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras’ boundary-pushing talks and ideas program brings together rising stars, unsung heroes and provocateurs from across the world for blazing debate at the NSW Teachers Federation on Saturday 27 February 2021.
Queer Thinking is set to feature three thought-provoking sessions, curated by Benjamin Law, Julie McCrossin AM, and Patrick Abboud. Including for the first time, Virtual International Speakers, and the option to attend as part of a Virtual Audience.
This past year has undoubtedly been one of unprecedented challenge and hardship. The impact of droughts, fires, floods and a global pandemic tested our spirit and resolve. Let's come together to connect at Queer Thinking, it’s time we rise together again.
Book tickets here. If you're unable to attend in person, Virtual Tickets are also available to purchase so you can watch live from home.
The Mardi Gras Parade and Festival will look different in 2021, but importantly, it will allow us to come together and celebrate our pride safely. Closer to each event date, all ticketholders will receive email correspondence containing the safety measures we have introduced and any associated direction from the Mardi Gras team.
