"We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims beneath the wheels of injustice,
we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself." Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison (1943-1945)

 “Gay Yesterday: recognising changing identities and once-gay realities”


“Radical sexual politics and LGBT+ activism promotes sexual identities as categories of existence that are inborn and unchangeable. But the experience of many indicates that sexual identities do change as do behaviours and feelings.  The session will examine the role of the “orientation” narrative in denying the experience of those formerly gay, in the context of a range of European countries."

Some participants will share their once gay experieince, and call for the recognition of identities that resist the must-stay-gay culture being imposed by some governments and local authorites".
