Panel : Lesbian Desire as resistance

CEU Nador 15

In our societies, lesbian bodies, sexualities, desires, loves, romantic and erotic relationships, are intrinsically transgressive. Giving in to lesbian desire, allowing ourselves to fully experience it, succumb to it, embrace it, is eminently political and is an act of resistance to the cis-heteronormative imperative. Inspired by the works of Audre Lorde, this discussion seeks to explore the power of the erotic, but also the many ways in which our community reclaims its agency, be it through art and representation, through breaking the mold of monogamy, or for instance through butch masculinities bridging the gap between sexual orientation and gender identity.
