IDEAS Forum: Queer Space

Does queerness have a spatial expression? What does it look like and who makes these queer spaces? What is the future of queer space in our cities - are they ephemeral or can queerness find permanence in the built environment? Join the Toronto Society of Architects for a special virtual Pride edition of our IDEAS Forum, where an exciting group of artists, designers, and architects will explore questions of queer space in Toronto — past, present and future — in a series of fast paced and fun pecha-kucha presentations (20 slides for 20 seconds each). The presentations will be followed by a moderated discussion led by Azure Magazine’s Evan Pavka.

A Pride Panel: Queer Perspectives At and After University

Join us for a compelling virtual panel discussion and Q&A on the topic of intersectional queer and trans perspectives during life at university and after graduation, with candid feedback on what it means to enter academic and professional spaces and retain queerness. Hear from the insights of former TBLGAY members, York alumni and current York undergraduates on how current students can set themselves up for success at and after university!
