Queer Diplomacy, A Conversation
Glad Day Bookshop
Wednesday May 3, 2023 6-8 PM
Join us to celebrate the publication of Queer Diplomacy: Homophobia, International Relations and LGBT Human Rights (Palgrave Macmillan 2022), by, Douglas Victor Janoff, Ph.D. Drawing on interviews with diplomats, queer activists and human rights experts, the book demonstrates how Western efforts to combat homophobic and transphobic discrimination and violence have triggered conflict from opposing states seeking to minimize LGBT rights as a “legitimate”
human right. Doug will be in conversation with Dr. Momin Rahman (Trent University) and Doug Kerr, Executive Director, Dignity Network Canada.
