  1. ‘Genderqueer’ has come to describe a wide range of gendered identities and experiences during the past couple of decades. Genderqueer books have been published, genderqueer art has been produced, genderqueer events are held. Untold thousands (millions?) of people live genderqueer lives.


    However, we believe that ‘genderqueer’ remains under-examined within the academic world. We therefore aim to explore genderqueer lives, identities and experiences from a range of perspectives both within and beyond the academic world.
