    This talk will look at how popular songs can mediate issues in gay and queer politics

    Join Dr Fiorenzo Palermo, lecturer in BA Popular Music, as he discusses Gay and Queer Popular Music.

    Gender and sexuality have always been an important part of popular music (and music in general), with issues pertaining to sexual expression, identity, and orientation implicitly or explicitly articulated through a song’s music, lyrics and visual representation.

    There are already some histories of popular song and queer desire. Join us for this presentation focused on developing a critical reading of (current) popular music from a queer theory perspective. This talk will look at how popular songs can mediate issues in gay and queer politics.

    This is a free event.
