Voguing Reality Live Stream

I was recently invited to give  a guest lecture at NYU’s Makerspace in Brooklyn!  I was invited as part of NYU Pride Month, a month long celebration of the LGBT community at NYU.  My lecture focused on my thesis, Voguing Reality, where I talked about the relation between Drag Culture and Virtual Reality.

I was nervous to give my first guest lecture in front of real students, but once I got up to the front of the space, I realized that everyone one there was just excited to see the queering of tech spaces!  It was so heart warming to know that I was helping inspire and influence undergrads into navigating queerness, especially under the lens of technology and media, which so often doesn’t really highlight the LGBT experience.
