Join for an informative talk delivered by the music department’s own Dr. Freya Jarman, reader in critical musicology and expert in queer theory within music. We’ll be looking at the history of the LGBT+ community in music, in particular the benefits and issues associated with ‘searching’ for queer people in the musical world. This promises to be an engaging evening, and is catered to anyone interested in the subject - you don’t have to be musical or know anything about LGBT+ music history in advance!
