About the SSQRG

SSQRG was established in 2006 and aims to:

  • Encourage geographic research and scholarship on topics related to sexualities and queer studies
  • Promote educational ways for communicating geographic perspectives on sexualities and queer theories that will inform both curriculum and pedagogical needs
  • Promote interest in geographies on issues related to sexualities and queer studies and promote the exchange of ideas and information about intersections between sexualities, queer studies and geographies
  • Offer a supportive environment for the exchange of ideas and the development of social networks to fight discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and/or practices, gender identity and other forms of gender/sexual prejudice
