Queering Europe: nationalism and sexuality
This event will explore the seemingly paradoxical relationship between sexuality and Europeanness. Challenging the binary of tolerant West and intolerant others, the event will discuss how both homophobia and homonationalism are intertwined with nationalist projects across the continent.

From the EU parliament to pride parades and right-wing manifestos, supposedly appropriate and inappropriate attitudes to sexuality are hotly debated across Europe. Paradoxically, they are often mobilised to seemingly contradictory ends: either to condemn those deemed queer for being queer or to castigate those deemed homophobic for being homophobic. Sexuality is employed to define ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ ways of being European; whether that is in so-called LGBT-free zones or supposed liberal ‘gaybourhoods’ haunted by the folk devil of the ‘intolerant immigrant’.

Hosted by the LSE European Institute and Department of Gender Studies, as part of the series Beyond Eurocentrism.

Attendance at an event will be shared with other parts of the School.
