Glasgow: Diverse Identities in Sport Conference

March 04, 2016 at LEAP Sports Scotland in Glasgow.

The conference will focus on issues of inclusion of transgender, intersex, non-binary, genderqueer, asexual and other diverse identities related to gender and sexualities in their intersections with other identities within a sport context, and look at practice and strategies for inclusion. We will look at a range of pathways but will focus primarily on access level, grassroots and recreational sport.

The conference is being organised and delivered as a partnership with sportscotland, Scottish Transgender Alliance, Centre for Gender & Feminist Studies at the University of Stirling, Glasgow Human Rights Network at University of Glasgow and Pride Sports UK.

Bringing together a variety of stakeholders, there will be learning routes for sports administrators and governing bodies, those involved in organising recreational sport, academics, activists and sportspeople. The venue is yet to be announced, but you can pre-register your interest in the conference by clicking the link above to receive updates when booking opens and the programme is released.

Glasgow: Diane Torr @ Transmission

January 23, 2016 at Transmission in Glasgow.

30 YEARS OF SEX AND DRAG (talk) – 7pm
GENDER AS PERFORMANCE (workshop) – 12pm – 4pm

Reinventing the narratives of sex and gender, Diane Torr developed her work in performance art, film, installation and photography, particularly within the context of NYC from 1976-2002. She garnered acclaim as a prominent gender activist through her teaching of the Drag King (later known as Man for a Day) workshops. She moved to Glasgow and continued her art practice, creating “drag king” performances, co-authoring a book with Stephen Bottoms, Sex, Drag and Male Roles: Investigating Gender as Performance and appearing in a feature film on her work, Man for a Day by Berlin filmmaker, Katarina Peters, which premiered at the Berlinale Film Festival in 2012.

—–

30 YEARS OF SEX AND DRAG will cover Diane’s work made most recently in Glasgow and Berlin, as well as her time spent as an integral part of the lively downtown Manhattan art scene during the late 70s, 80s, 90s. There will be references to her collaborations with other artists such as Nan Goldin, Kiki Smith, Bradley Wester, and as part of the the art group, COLAB, NO MORE NICE GIRLS, and the all-girl art band, DISBAND.

There will be time for Q&A after the talk.

——

The GENDER AS PERFORMANCE workshop is a combination of interior realisations and verbal understandings of individual discovery. Within this workshop there is the chance for both physical and verbal dialogue. It has the possibility to bring a group of people to a new understanding of gender and identity, one which is not defined by the gender binary. In the workshop, participants explore some origins of gender/identity by looking into the creation of new transformation possibilities – developing new body languages.

I am guided by physical knowledge as a source of conscious understanding and this forms the basis of the GENDER AS PERFORMANCE workshop. In the workshop, I begin with an extended movement investigation, and this is done in the dark. We talk about the experience later.
Some of the things that we investigate include:
How to develop the freedom to transcend the gender binary?
Who owns gesture? – performing the self – what does that mean?
What is the primordial self?
What is the culturally motivated self?’

Places for GENDER AS PERFORMANCE are free but limited (book through eventbrite)

Glasgow: The Telescopes (eng) + The Desert Willows

January 30, 2016 at NICE N SLEAZY in Glasgow.

Shoegaze Noise indie legends return to Glasgow, FINALLY!

“Founded in 1987 by Stephen Lawrie. The Telescopes have been mining a unique anti-myopian seam of highly influential experimental, drone, noise, dream & psych for over 20 years.

Their first record was a split flex-disc with Loop on Cheree Records. After a further two critically acclaimed singles for the label, they moved to What Goes On Records, where they released another two EPs and their debut album “Taste”. All of which found their way to the top of the UK independent charts, gathering ‘single of the week’ / ‘album of the month’ status in all of the British music papers of the time.

Tours followed with Spacemen 3, Primal Scream and The Jesus and Mary Chain. And it wasn’t long before The Telescopes were headliners themselves. Bark Psychosis, Whipping Boy, Slowdive, Bleach, The Cranes and Ride all played some of their earlier shows supporting them. In 1990 the group appeared at one of the UK’s biggest festivals of the time, The Reading Festival. They were one of the few bands that weren’t bottled off the stage at the event. However, the increasing violent interactions with audiences at their shows saw the group step away from their noise origins and head towards a more introspective psychedelic sound. It was around this time that What Goes On folded and Alan McGee stepped in to release the group’s material from the hands of official receivership.

One of the more interesting bands that were signed to Creation Records. The group released their second album and a string of EPs for the label. Working with Douglas Hart (The Jesus and Mary Chain) on their videos, visual artist Paul Cannel on their sleeve work and Laika’s Guy Fixsen in the studio. The final EP for the label registered in the UK mainstream top 80 after being hit listed on BBC Radio 1 by Mark Goodyear. The group were also favoured by John Peel and recorded two BBC Radio 1 sessions for him. Marc Riley and Mark Radcliffe also had them in the studio for a session around the time of their 2nd album and MTV ran features. The Guardian’s Alexis Petridis described The Telescopes as having “an almost fragile sense of elegance and melody”.

Then in 1992 the group underwent an eight year hiatus, resuming output in the year 2000 with a revolving line up. A stream of releases followed on labels such as Double Agent (USA), Trensmat (Ireland), Champion Version (UK), Antenna (UK), Norman Records (UK), Static Charge (UK), Mind Expansion (USA), Fourier Transform (UK), Textile Records (France), Dream Machine Records (UK) and Hungry Audio (UK). Most physical copies selling out in advance.

“The Telescopes have resurfaced and I am amazed and glad they are still practicing their mysterious art” (John Peel) ”

The Desert Willows, a fresh new Glasgow 3 piece have mastered the raw garage 60’s influenced sound, finely mixed in a cocktail of catchy riffs with resonating vocals which can and will reach screaming explosive heights.
