Posie Parker has a new event, ‘Lesbians on Chairs’...
115

Destinysdaughter · 03/04/2019 19:19

Here’s the details...

Sat, 11 May 2019
12:30 – 14:45 BST
Location


Central London
London

Description
The very worst of Lesbian erasure is upon us as our society embraces the mutilation of young lesbian bodies with chemicals and surgeries. How did we get here and how can we stop it?
Our panel is chaired by
Anne Ruzlyo, an Ex prison officer

Our panellists are:
Sheila Jeffreys: a lesbian feminist writer and activist. She taught sexual politics at the University of Melbourne, where she is now a professorial fellow, before retiring to the UK in 2015. She is the author of 10 books, and her latest is The Lesbian Revolution: lesbian feminism in the UK 1970-1990, 2018.
Julia Long: a lesbian - one of the old-fashioned kinds that doesn’t have a penis. She has worked in education, local government, academia and the women’s sector, and is currently a researcher in the field of male violence against women. Julia is a long-time Lesbian Feminist activist and her book Anti-Porn: The Resurgence of Anti-Pornography Feminism was published in 2012 by Zed Books. She is currently writing a book on how men have managed to convince so many people – including most ‘gender critical feminists’ - that there is such a thing as ‘transgenderism’. Julia has the great good fortune to live in Lesbian Feminist community and wants all women to know that this is possible. Her hobbies include sitting on chairs, eating pizza and naming men as men.
Dovile Lapinskaite: graduate in politics, philosophy and history of art, lesbian radical feminist, activist and independent artists.
Julia Beck: a writer and organizer from Baltimore, Maryland. She helps produce a monthly radio broadcast for Women's Liberation Radio News. Last year, she represented lesbians at Baltimore Pride and on the Law and Policy Committee of Baltimore City's LGBTQ Commission. She is currently at the fore of the fight for women's rights in the USA.
There will be a bounty of merchandise to purchase, please bring cash.
We will be live streaming on Posie Parker Youtube channel.
The venue supply unlimited water and will be announced a few hours before the event.
If you are experiencing financial difficulties please contact [email protected] and we may be able to offer a reduced ticket price.

Here’s a link for tickets. Btw I have nothing to do with the organisation of this, but I saw it on Posie’s FB feed and I can’t actually go so decided to do my bit and share it on here!

Gosh, I hope the Met coppers are on standby that night. All overtime cancelled surely.

Maybe bring the army in?

"She is currently writing a book on how men have managed to convince so many people – including most ‘gender critical feminists’ - that there is such a thing as ‘transgenderism’"

This sounds promising.

What a line-up! I would give my eye teeth to go to this event though unfortunately it's hundreds of miles away. Those brilliant speakers should be broadcasted to the government. Looking forward to the YouTube.

I didn’t know Julia Long is writing a book. I hope she has a publisher for it because that would be an auto buy for me. I think she’s fantastic at laying out arguments in a cool-headed way.

This sounds great too and would love to hear from Julia Long so soon after the Accenture fiasco on her take and what's happened since

Hipsterfun - I went to one they did in Barnstaple, N Devon and was a bit worried for similar reasons - I couldn't find it mentioned anywhere apart from the booking site and Barnstaple seemed a bit random etc but it was all fine (and totally worth it)
