City’s Centre for Gender and Sexualities is excited to invite you to a talk by Dr. Kevin Guyan about their new book “Queer Data: Using Gender, Sex and Sexuality Data for Action” (Bloomsbury Academic). This important book looks at queer data – defined as data relating to gender, sex, sexual orientation and trans identity/history.

Dr. Guyan shows us how current data practices reflect an incomplete account of LGBTQ lives and helps us understand how data biases are used to delegitimise the everyday experiences of queer people.

Dr. Guyan demonstrates why it is important to understand, collect and analyse queer data, the benefits and challenges involved in doing so, and how we might better use queer data in our work.

The book shows how greater knowledge about queer identities is instrumental in informing decisions about resource allocation, changes to legislation, access to services, representation and visibility.

Dr Elinor Carmi is the discussant for this event.
