The recent decriminalisation of homosexual sex in India has been a landmark development for queer* rights in Asia. But the Asia-Pacific region, and the queer* people who live in it, are extremely diverse. How should we understand this important reform? And where does it fit in the dynamic landscape of cultures, religions and beliefs held by the people of the Asia and the Pacific?
Join CAPSS and the ANU Learning Communities as we host a panel of experts to unpack these questions. From South Asia to Samoa, we’ll be looking at sexuality and gender within this broad context.
This event will be held from 7PM to 8PM on Tuesday 25 September, at the Australian Centre on China in the World. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided at the conclusion of the event.
