Alongside these literary works will be a discussion around the more recent television productions of ‘ Queer as Folk’ and ‘It’s A Sin’ .
Come and join Mark for this engaging workshop . We will look at extracts together and explore the codes, conventions and euphemistic language that have been used over the years to closet and to repress sexual identities. Mark will also consider how the law and justice system failed so many people and how today the government is ignoring many trans voices .
This talk will be inclusive and engaging and will be open for discussion and debate.
