Drag is art. Drag is also politics. Drag is about challenging gender roles and stereotypes and impressing an audience at the same time. In Norway, drag is trending on television with shows such as “Drags” on TV2 and “Drag me out” on TV Norge. Drag studies has also recently been established at Arbeiderbevegelsens Folkehøgskole (university college), and this autumn you can study drag at OsloMet. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the abolishment of section 213 in the Norwegian Penal Code, and drag is – and has been an important part of queer history.
In what ways are drag used politically today? And which effects will these TV series and studies on drag have? Knowit Experience and Bergen Pride invite you to a panel discussion about drag, politics and glamor!
In this event we will learn more about how the drag community has developed in recent years together with famous kings and queens.
(Sunday) 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Knowit Experience in cooperation with Bergen Pride
Open for everyone.
