Today is the 3rd annual DC Queer Studies Symposium (DC as in District of Columbia, the American capital city Washington). It's a one-day conference, being held at the University of Maryland, College Park campus. And it's free and open to the public. It's presented by DC Queer Studies.
My partner, Julia McCrossin, is presenting her paper "Supersize Fetish" during one of the Concurrent Graduate Symposium Sessions:
