The Department of Social Work Education will be hosting a discussion and panel on "Lesbian Bars, Gay Places, Queer Futures" from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Henry Madden Library (Room 3212) on Monday, Jan. 23.

Leading the discussion is Dr. Greggor Mattson, professor at Oberlin College and author of The Cultural Politics of European Prostitution Reform. The presentation will examine whether there is a role for lesbian bars in "post-gay" America.

What do we reject when we accept queer lives without commercial places? What underpins the capacity to claim, maintain, and defend places as anchors for identity and social lifeā€”or the ability to do without them?

Following the presentation will be a discussion panel and Q&A.
