Ulster’s Lesser Spotted Queer Protestant – CANCELLED

25 March @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

In this performance lecture, let Richard O’Leary take you in search of Ulster’s Lesser Spotted Queer Protestant.

The existence of the LSQP has long been denied by many historians and Christians, but Dr. O’Leary will present evidence to challenge the orthodox view. Drawing on newly accessed archival material, Dr. O’Leary presents both an objective and subjective view. Expect shy historians, fairies, an arse bishop, quack doctors, lesbian divas, erasure, puppets. This performance lecture will be followed by a panel discussion with Jeff Dudgeon and Adrianne Elson.

Dr. Richard O’Leary is Visiting Research Fellow in the School of History at Queen’s University Belfast and Coordinator of the Northern Ireland LGBT Heritage Project. He was artist in residence at the 2019 Outburst Queer Arts Festival.
