Portrait of d’Éon by Thomas Stewart (1792)

As part of LGBTQ+ History month, London’s Strawberry Hill House hosts a series of online talks which explore the House, its occupants and our cultural understanding of LGBTQ+ history during the long 18th century.

By any measure, Charlotte de Beaumont, Chevalière d’Eon, had a remarkable life. According to her biography she had been a diplomat, spy and calvary officer in the service of the French Crown. In her retirement in London, she became a professional swordfighter and a feminist. She was known to intellectuals such as Rousseau and Mary Wollstonecraft, and her true gender was the subject of considerable wagers.

Death has not slowed her down. She has given her name to the Beaumont Society, Britain’s oldest support organisation for trans women and cross-dressers. She has even become the star of a Japanese anime series.

In this talk, Cheryl Morgan, co-chair of OutStories Bristol, will delve into the story of this trans celebrity and compare the experience of being trans in the 18th Century to today.

Bookcover with "Queer" in the colours of the rainbowTo celebrate LGBT+ History Month, Bristol Libraries are delighted to be hosting this author event with literary translator, writer and editor Frank Wynne, who will discuss his new book Queer: LGBTQ Writing from Ancient Times to Yesterday in conversation with writer and publisher Cheryl Morgan, co-chair of OutStories Bristol.

Drawing together writing from Catullus to Sappho, from Arthur Rimbaud to Anne Lister and Armistead Maupin, translator Frank Wynne has collected eighty of the finest works representing queer love by LGBTQ authors.

Queer straddles the spectrum of queer experience, from Verlaine’s sonnet in praise of his lover’s anus and Emily Dickinson’s exhortation of a woman’s beauty, to Alison Bechdel’s graphic novel of her coming out, Juno Dawson’s reflections on gender and Oscar Wilde’s ‘De Profundis’.

With stories, poems, extracts and scenes from countries the world over, Queer is an unabashed and unapologetic anthology, which gives voice to those often silenced.

Thursday 25th February 2021, 7pm-8pm

This online event will be hosted on Zoom. Tickets are free! Book via Eventbrite.

To celebrate LGBT History Month, the Human Rights Implementation Centre of the University of Bristol is delighted to welcome Jonathan Cooper OBE, from Doughty Street Chambers, who will delve into queer history and explore the human rights of being queer.

Despite legal reforms, meaningful equality remains out of reach:

  • Trans identities are increasingly the subject of public and political debate
  • Measures to protect LGBT kids from bullying at school are under attack
  • A trans man cannot be registered as the father of the child he gave birth to
  • A gay man can be denied a service with a pro-gay marriage message and the law will provide a legal fiction to justify why that is OK.

Is gender the problem and not the solution? Do we need to end gender? What’s next for Queer Britain?

The discussion will be chaired by Dr Sandra Duffy, and Jonathan will be joined in conversation by Cheryl Morgan of OutStories Bristol, and Dr Peter Dunne.

24 Feb 2021 – The history of gender in sport

 Old events posts  Comments Off on 24 Feb 2021 – The history of gender in sport
Jan 102021
 

Women were barred from the original Olympic games, yet Rome had women gladiators.

Down the centuries, the question of who can partake in sport has always been controversial and not least for the LGBTQ+ community. In the 20th century, thanks to advances in medical science, the focus has switched over to definitions of womanhood.

The 1930s saw numerous controversies over women athletes, including Mark Weston from Plymouth who had competed in the Olympics as a woman but, after an unspecified procedure at Charing Cross Hospital, began to live as a man.

These early controversies primarily featured people with intersex traits, and this pattern has continued. More recently there have also been controversies over the participation of trans people in sport.

Our panel discussion will look at the LGBTQ+ history of gender segregation in sport, and what that means for intersex and trans athletes today.

The panel will be:

  • medical historian, Dr. Sonja Erikainen from the University of Edinburgh;
  • historian Professor Noah Riseman from the Catholic University of Melbourne;
  • football player Samantha Walker;
  • rugby player Verity Smith.

This event is morning to accommodate Professor Riseman joining us from Australia.

Hild' bookcover portraying ghost-like young woman in a forest
Saint Hilda of Whitby is a key figure in the history of Christianity in early Britain. Born into a royal family in Northumbria in 614 CE, Hilda entered the church and founded Whitby Abbey.

There she hosted the Synod of Whitby in which clergy from the British and Roman branches of the Christian Church met to debate the then disputed question of how to calculate the date of Easter.

In her historical novel, Hild, based on the early life of the saint, award-winning novelist Nicola Griffith chose to make her heroine bisexual.

In this event, Nicola will be in conversation with historian and OutStories Bristol co-chair Cheryl Morgan. They will talk about the research underpinning the novel, and how we understand ideas of sexuality and gender in the ancient and early-medieval world.

They will address the perils of assuming a linear progression of attitudes from the past to the present day — tolerance is not a purely 21st-century characteristic.

Nicola Griffith grew up in Yorkshire but now lives in Seattle with her wife and fellow writer, Kelley Eskridge. Griffith has a successful career in writing novels and memoir, and editing anthologies of original queer fiction. She has won multiple awards, including six from the Lambda Literary Foundation for books with LGBTQ+ themes.

Jan 102021
 

Side of man's face, perhaps in his mid 30s with beard and moustache and wearing a seaman's cap and shirt.Michael Dillon is one of the key figures in 20th century trans history.

Whilst other trans men had undergone surgeries before him, Dillon was one of the first people to use testosterone, and probably the very first to receive a penis through plastic surgery.

However, Dillon’s importance goes far beyond his medical transition. He also wrote a treatise on the medical treatment of trans people that was decades ahead of its time. Later on he became the first Western European to be ordained as a Buddhist monk.

Many of the key incidents in Dillon’s life happened while he was living in Bristol. It was not a happy time for him as World War II was raging, and gender transition is never easy.

In this talk Cheryl Morgan will look at Dillon’s life, and in particular bring to light some of the latest research on his time in Bristol.

Speaker: Cheryl Morgan, co-chair of Outstories Bristol.

Hidayah logo comprising rainbow coloured temple dome and minarets with text "Hidayah - gender, sexuality and Islam".According to LGBTQ+ charity Hidayah, research shows that Muslim views on sexual diversity became more conservative in the last century.

Today, the majority of the community does not accept same sex activity whether in the UK or abroad. Some Islamic states imprison gay people under morality laws, and some go as far as imposing the death penalty on them.

In this talk, we take this opportunity to reflect on queer Muslim art and poetry from the past. We will consider how queer Muslims have become increasingly visible. They are challenging views of hetero-normative attitudes in Muslim society today, giving positive examples of queer identities from their heritage.

Speaker: Osman is the outreach volunteer for Hidayah. This is a charity that provides support and welfare for LGBTQ+ Muslims. It provides education around the queer Muslim community to counter discrimination, prejudice and injustice.
