Book Talk - Making Gaybies: Queer Reproduction and Multiracial Feeling

King's Building, Strand Campus, London

Making Gaybies is a vital account of racialised intimacy in contemporary queer family making in multiracial Australia.

Attentive to how diverse LGBT would-be parents navigate both the specificities of the Australian context shaped by its settler colonial history and the shifting terrain of the transnational reproductive markets, Keaney illuminates how queer family making fosters new multiracial imaginaries of kinship.

This book event will feature a short presentation by the author Dr Keaney (University of Melbourne), followed by responses from Dr Tanisha Spratt (King’s College London) and Dr R Sánchez-Rivera (University of Cambridge), a discussion chaired by Prof Anne Pollock (King’s College London), and a drinks reception.

Guests will also be able to purchase a signed copy of the book during the event.

This event is co-sponsored by the Reproduction Research Cluster and Queer@King’s.
