For the sixth time, the QUILTBAG Project will present its annual seminar and film screening, to be held at the Dr Miriam Makeba Auditorium at the University of Pretoria’s Muckleneuk campus in Pretoria.

Like, every year, this event promises thought-provoking conversation about topics affecting the LGBTQI+ community. This year’s theme is “Safe Spaces”, and after a call for papers earlier this year, a number of speakers will present views on the concept of safe spaces, as they pertain to the LGBTI+ community.

The QUILTBAG Project’s seminar will be held on 12 August, whilst the film screening and discussion that also forms a part of the event will take place on 13 August.

Both events are open to the public for free, but bookings are essential. To book for the QUILTBAG Project’s seminar, click here, and click here to book for the film screening.

About the QUILTBAG Project

The QUILTBAG Project is a collaborative effort of colleagues in the Department of Mercantile Law, the Department of Communication Science and the Department of Afrikaans & Theory of Literature at the University of South Africa.

The project takes its name from an acronym that is generally seen as more memorable, easier to pronounce and more representative of the wider queer community – QUILTBAG stands for Queer and Questioning, Unidentified, Intersex, Transgender and Transsexual, Bisexual, Asexual, Gay and Genderqueer.

The QUILTBAG Project is a community engagement project, launched in 2014 to coincide with the Pretoria Pride Parade.
