Bodies of Knowledge 6
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 on Thursday afternoon with a performance by Leigh Hendrix of “How to be a Lesbian in 10 Days or Less” and 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").
