Every year until 2020 we used to feature on Country Pages, which can be accessed via the interactive world map, as much information on May 17 events as we could find. We are currently unfortunately not in a capacity to do so anymore until further notice.

Country pages now only feature announcements of events that were directly registered on our site.

Event: GaGa Euphoria
Direction: What is gender euphoria and why is Gaga feminism important? Join us to find out

In this webinar we will explore the concepts of gender euphoria and gaga feminism. The former has been described by some trans people as the joy that they have felt when they first experience an unbounded sense of self. Gaga feminism, for Halberstam, is an attempt to open gender up from the limited and limiting cis-het binary and to celebrate other genders and gender identities. Gaga feminism is a call for feminists to be creative in how we understand and live our genders unlimited by the societal conventions and norms of patriarchy.
