*FREE* Transcestors Series: Pirates of the 1600s Atlantic
March 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
1-hour class via Zoom
How do modern-day portrayals of queer and trans pirates stack up to the real thing? Were there any pirates who we’d today define as trans? How did pirates view queer sexual orientations and gender presentations? What about other so-called political topics, such as slavery and disability? Take a look at queerness during The Golden Age of Piracy (1650-1730), centered around the Atlantic Ocean, with opportunity for Q&A. Note: This session includes mentions of queer/transphobia, racism/slavery, murder, sexual assault, misgendering/deadnaming, and appropriation.
