Young People’s Festival of Ideas: Language and Representation Within LGBT+ Culture

As part of LGBT History Month, join Young People’s Festival of Ideas and Freedom Youth for a panel discussion looking at the significance of language and representation in LGBT+ culture – past, present and future.

Are we being taught enough about LGBT+ issues and culture both within school and the wider world?

Are LGBT+ stories fairly represented within the media?

And how can we improve the language we use to talk about these issues?

Join us to discuss how we can address these questions when the cultural landscape and the language we use is constantly changing. Panel members to be announced soon…

Young People’s Festival of Ideas is a series of debates on critical issues affecting young people today. Brought to you by an event partnership between Bristol Festival of IdeasRising Arts Agency, Freedom Youth Bristol and Arnolfini. Please note that audience data is shared amongst the named partners.

With a panel of high profile speakers, you can expect debates, laughter and lots of free thinking.

After the panel discussion, there’s a chance to socialise and continue the conversation, with DJs, activities and a bar will be open from 6.30pm to 9.30pm.

This event is open to all and free for under 25’s. If you are over 25 we would welcome a suggested donation of £2.50. Please ensure you bring ID with you if you wish to purchase alcohol.
