Next year’s OUTing the Past Festival Conference of LGBT History & Activism will be hosted in the City of Belfast. This is a unique conference bringing together activists and academics to share knowledge and ideas and plot! This year participants were fulsome in their praise and commented often on how vital such a bringing together of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm was and how they found all the sessions inspiring and accessible.
The weekend conference will be celebrated from early evening on Friday 29th to the afternoon of Sunday 31st March 2019.
Call for Conference Papers opens 1st July 2018 and ends on 1st October. View the call for papers here
