Where is the joy? Portrayals and Depictions of LGBTIQ+ persons

Lecture Series

Lecture Series “De- and Reconstructing LGBTI*Q Politics in a Postcolonial World”


A critical examination of phenomena and trans­formations of political violence also requires conversations with those individuals and groups who experience violence. The lecture series at the Center for Gender Studies and Feminist Futures Studies at the Philipps University Marburg there­fore opens up a space for an inter­disciplinary exchange between academics and activists.

The lecture is given by Beverly Ditsie. Ditsie is a gender-non con­forming lesbian activist, award winning filmmaker, reality TV director and writer and musician. Ditsie was awarded an honorary doctorate from the Claremont Graduate Uni­versity in California and is founder of South Africa’s first multi­racial and political lesbian and gay rights group.

Topics from the TraCe lecture series of the winter semester 2022/23 will also be addressed. This lecture in particular is also part of the Pretoria-Marburg Queer Conversations (PMQC).
