Trans* and psychology

Discussion/talk

Trans* ways of life and perspectives can’t be described beyond psychological definitions (like “gender identity”). Sometimes these concepts are helpful for discussing gender, identity, sex, change. But they offer little room for Trans* between or beyond the bi-gender-norm. After a short (!) introduction to history and present discussions about psychological trans* concepts, there’s room for discussions about acquisition and boundaries, about expectations, wishes, demands on psychological debate with trans*, to change concepts of treatment and expertise and about ideas and activities to de-pathologize…

Drag Kinging: Geschlecht anders gestalten

Vortrag und Diskussion

Uta Schirmer hat für ihre Doktorarbeit Drag Kings in Berlin und Köln interviewt und sich damit beschäftigt, wie durch Drag Kinging (nicht nur als Bühnen-, sondern auch als Alltagspraxis) andere, nicht strikt zweigeschlechtliche Wirklichkeiten entstehen können. Dabei wird deutlich, wie in subkulturellen Praxen Geschlecht anders gestaltet und erfahren werden kann.

Drag Kinging: Gender Designed Differently

For her PHD disertation, Uta Schirmer examined Drag Kinging (not only as theater but as everyday practice) for how it designs and allows different, non strict two gender realities. How within subcultural practices, gender may be experienced and designed differently.

Orientalismus der (Homo-Sexualität)

Vortrag und Diskussion

Plötzlich interessieren sich auch Konservative für die Probleme von Homosexuellen – nämlich wenn diese Opfer von Gewalt werden, die von „Fremden“ ausgeht. Diese werden von ihnen einer „rückständigen“ und „andersartigen“ Kultur zugeordnet, von der sie sich selbst abheben möchten. Selbst Linken gilt „der Westen“ als Quelle sexueller Emanzipation schlechthin und „der Islam“ wiederum als monokausal verantwortlich für sexualrepressive Zustände und die Verfolgung von „Schwulen“ im Nahen Osten. Der Referent dekonstruiert diesen kulturalistischen Mythos. Er umreißt eine Geschichte der Heteronormalisierung der muslimischen Länder als einen von Europa inspirierten Modernisierungsprozess, der in der Übernahme von psychiatrischen Kategorien, sexuellen Identitäten und nationalistischen Praktiken bestand. Auch wird thematisiert, wie das Konstrukt der „islamischen Homophobie“ als politisches Instrument Verwendung findet.

Lindy Hop Crash Course

Lindy Hop is a style of dance, started in the 1930’s in ballrooms of New York, along with big band music. The Lindy Hop fever soon ran through all classes and colours of society. Today, this dance is coming back. Lindy Hop is danced in couples, based on steps not really following a pattern, but instead on what dancers improvised. It’s funny and flirty, similar to Rock’n’Roll, but lower, more down to the floor.

The crash course will take place right before the party, so you’ll be able to try your new steps when the party starts, with the proper music, of course.

Heather doesn’t want to get rid of these feelings, at the same time not knowing what those feelings are good for. But she knows that a lot of people know those feelings and that it’s hard to talk about them.
