Queer Collaborations Diary
As I write, I still don't know if I'm going to Queer Collaborations '05.
The major issue is money, or the lack of it. The local student unions have budget problems, because of the impending Voluntary Student Unionism. It isn't passed yet, but with the government having a majority in the Senate soon, it's a bit of a foregone conclusion. In any case, there are 5 or 6 of us who want to go this year, and there may be funds for only four.
A meeting was to be held late today, but so far there's no outcome been posted on any of the local lists. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
In the meantime, I've sent in a submission for a seminar at the conference:
SEMINAR: BEING NON CHRISTIAN & QUEER: ALTERNATE QUEER SPIRITUALITY
(About Queers and Religion/spirituality)
This is an overview of non-Christian/Islam/Jewish religions & spiritualities and their attitudes toward queer & trans folk; with specifics to neo-pagan religions (and in particular modern Gallae, or transgendered pagans). Where to find alternative religions and spiritualities.
