Queer Revolt is DePaul’s first LGBTQ+ conference that aims to increase the visibility of LGBTQ+ Studies.

Queer Revolt is the first LGBTQ+ interdisciplinary conference at DePaul to include submissions from any university in the Chicagoland area. Its aims are to increase the visibility of LGBTQ+ studies on university campuses, to establish DePaul as a unique place of study for LGBTQ+ studies, and to celebrate the anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riots.

Queer Revolt is this year’s theme because queer sexuality and political action have been historically intertwined. Some questions that this conference seeks to ask are the following: Does the modern LGBT movement still present a challenging critique of heteronormativity? How are chosen families or queer kinship revolutionary? How does white homonormativity present barriers to queer revolt? What does an intersectional approach to queer revolt look like? How are these ideas implicated in literature, art, public health, the sciences, universities, schools, and/or businesses? How has Queer Revolt been censored or forgotten?

Queer Revolt reinvigorates the revolutionary ideals espoused during and after the Stonewall Riots. The conference is a discussion of these ideals in our own contemporary political context.
