Details

The Celebrity Culture Club brings together media and cultural studies academics with folks working in the media and culture sectors. Our panel of queer creatives will celebrate queer contributions to the creative industries, past and present, as well as discussing the role of queerness in celebrity culture. We will also debate the passage of trends from queer subcultures into the mainstream, and moments of queer resistance and joy.
