Feminist discussion: “Does a Woman Exist in LGBT Movement?”

What is women's role in the modern Russian LGBT movement? Is collaboration possible between women and men in LGBT organizations? Are men's and women's interests equally represented on the agenda of Russian LGBT movement? How does a "typical representative of LGBT community" look like in the eyes of the everyday Russian? Should we talk of "institutional androcentrism" in the Russian LGBT movement?

Special guest:

Olga Pospelova, PhD, gender researcher, author of literature on feminist, gender, and queer studies, LGBT organization "Rakurs"
