QVW: Body Questions

Doors open in an hour!

Upon arriving, attendees will be invited to discuss these opening questions. If you're following along at home or on the go, feel free to contribute your thoughts in the comments or on Twitter with the hashtag #QVWBody

  • How do we, as LGBTQ communities view our bodies? Is it largely negative? Largely positive?

  • Does the way we feel and talk about body change with age? Is it different in various subcultures?

  • Think about the way we change our bodies—modification, surgery, weight loss, weight gain, exercise and augmentation. Are there ways that we change our bodies that are affected by our queerness?

  • Think about the way we use our bodies? What are ways that we use the body that can be labelled as queer?
