The Space, Sexualities and Queer Research Group (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 geographical intersections between sexualities and queer studies, where involvement of early-career researchers is maximised

▼ Offer a supportive environment for the exchange of ideas and the development of social and activist networks to fight forms of discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and/or practices, sexual and gender identity and expression, and other forms of sexual and gender prejudice
