The Bodies of Knowledge 6 Symposium and Conference will be held at the University of South Carolina Upstate April 10 - 11, 2014 in the CLC Ballroom. This year, as many of our speakers and performers are focusing on various ways of being LGBTQ, we are taking up the broad topic of LGBTQ cultural morés.
The event will kick off Thursday with a talk by Thomas McBee on being “Trans, but Not Like You Think.” Friday will include lectures by Dr. David Halperin (author of "How to Be Gay" and co-founder of "GLQ: A Journal of Gay and Lesbian Studies") and Dr. Bernadette Barton (author of "Pray the Gay Away: The Extraordinary Lives of Bible Belt Gays").
