Welcome to the Royal Geographical Society-Institute of British Geographers Space, Sexualities and Queer Research Group (SSQRG). SSQRG hosts regular events, including conferences, seminars, reading weekends and social events. This site contains information about upcoming SSQRG activities and events, and details about how to join the group. We are also currently developing a research register for members.
SSQRG was established in 2006 and aims to:
- encourage geographic research and scholarship on topics related to sexualities and queer studies
- promote educational ways for communicating geographic perspectives on sexualities and queer theories that will inform both curriculum and pedagogical needs
- promote interest in geographies on issues related to sexualities and queer studies and promote the exchange of ideas and information about intersections between sexualities, queer studies and geographies
- offer a supportive environment for the exchange of ideas and the development of social networks to fight discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and/or practices, gender identity and other forms of gender/sexual prejudice
