Queering University

The programme supports staff and students to develop, implement, share and sustain queer pedagogies and perspectives. It encourages teaching & learning, pastoral, and other practices that are inclusive of trans and LGBTQUIA+ people, and improves understanding in the classroom and wider university settings.

Orlando: My Political Biography

19th - 24th July

Blurring the lines between reality and fiction, this fascinating film by trans writer, philosopher and activist Paul B. Preciado – a leading figure in the study of gender and body politics – is a playful, moving, metatextual documentary inspired by Virginia Woolf’s novelOrlando: A Biography, in which the protagonist famously changes gender.

Casting a diverse cross-section of trans and non-binary individuals in the role of Orlando as they perform interpretations of scenes from the novel, weaving into Woolf’s narrative their own stories of identity and transition, Preciado explores Orlando’s relevance in the fight for global trans rights.


26th July - 1st August

The bright, warm and novelistic new drama from Akin (And Then We Danced), Crossing won the Teddy Award Jury Prize for LGBTQ-themed films at this year’s Berlin Film Festival.

Retired teacher Lia (Mzia Arabuli) promised her dying sister that she would seek out her long-lost daughter Tekla. Together with cocky young Achi (Lucas Kankava), who offers to be her guide, she sets off for Turkey to find Tekla in Istanbul’s trans community. But locating someone who doesn’t want to be found is hard. Can Evrim (Deniz Dumanlı), a street-smart lawyer fighting for trans rights, help them?
