Date and Time: Sunday July 14th, 3-5pm.  A masked event.

Location: IIRE, Lombokstraat 40, Amsterdam (bus 22 or bus 65 to Javaplein) 
Speaker: Gary Kinsman is a long-time ‘Canadian’ queer liberation and anti-capitalist activist; the author of The Regulation of Desire and co-author of The Canadian War on Queers; and a member of the No Pride in Policing Coalition and Queers 4 Palestine – Toronto.
Discussant: Peter Drucker is the author of Warped, Gay Normality and Queer Anti-Capitalism.
First published in 1987 The Regulation of Desire became an important contribution to ‘Canadian’ and global critical work on sexual regulation.
Now revised for the first time since 1996 this 3rd edition includes the emergence of the neoliberal queer; the right-wing attacks on trans people; and the need for anti-racist, abolitionist queer and trans liberation movements.
The launch is dedicated to the Palestinian people under genocidal attack and is opposed to Islamophobia (including gay versions of it) and anti-Palestinian racism.
