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.

With founder of Sink the Pink and Margate Pride, Amy Zing, cabaret legends Bourgois & Maurice, Dr Jon Ward, commercial semiotician Dr Bridget Dalton, and fine artist Simon Foxall, hosted by Dr Hannah Yelin (Senior Lecturer in Communication, Media and Culture).
