Clothesline Project

The Clothesline Project was created to bring awareness to the issue of violence against women. For women who have been affected by violence, it is a means of expressing their emotions by decorating a t-shirt. After the shirts have been decorated, they are hung on a clothesline display. The intention of the display is to honor survivors and act as a memorial for victims. It is also intended to aid in the healing process for those who were directly affected and those who have lost someone special to violence. Lastly, the clothesline display is to educate society and promote awareness, as well as to document violent crimes against women. CAPS

Queer Studies Lecture Series: Trevor Hoppe, Punishing Disease: HIV and the Criminalization of Sickness

From the beginning of the epidemic, AIDS was linked to punishment. Calls to punish people living with HIV—mostly stigmatized minorities—began before doctors had even settled on a name for the disease. This talk explores how HIV was transformed from sickness to badness under the criminal law and investigates the consequences of inflicting penalties on people living with disease. Professor Hoppe’s Lambda Literary Award-winning book, Punishing Disease: HIV and the Criminalization of Sickness (University of California Press), analyzes the rise of punitive and coercive responses to HIV.

Queer Studies Lecture Series: Pidgeon Pagonis, Intersex Stories (Not Surgeries) – Resisting Intersex Pathologization

For over a century, intersex people had no voice in their medical “care” and “treatment.” Intersex Stories, Not Surgeries encourages participants to grapple with the ways in which the Medical Industrial Complex has violated intersex people’s human rights. As an activist, educator, and filmmaker, Pidgeon’s goal is to deconstruct the dangerous myths that lead to violations of intersex people’s rights, including medical procedures performed without consent to make bodies conform to binary sex stereotypes. In addition to this lecture, at 4 pm in the HUB, Pidgeon will hold a screening and Q&A on their short film, The Son I Never Had (2017), describing their discovery at 19 that they had been born intersex, and how, a decade later, they created this film as a “a love letter to my younger self and all of those trying to survive outside the binary.” The Queer Studies Lecture Series is made possible thanks to the Women’s and Gender Studies Department, Queer Studies Minor, SSU Instructionally Related Activities Program, Campus Life, and the HUB.
