My Other Body: A Conversation on Transgender and Queer Rights and Visibility in Cuba

My Other Body is an ongoing collaborative project between artists, activists, and members of the queer community in Cuba and the United States. Originated by the esteemed Cuban photo-journalist Julio Larramendi, My Other Body is an intimate engagement, composed of documentary footage of a wide array of LGBT identified Cubans mostly living and working in Havana. In light of the recent political battles sparked by the HB2 bill in North Carolina, we invite the Duke community and the broader public to experience this artwork and have an open conversation on human rights and radical aesthetics.

Panelists: Karen Graffeo (University of Montevallo), Julio Larramendi: Havana, Cuba (Author and Photojournalist), 

Moderator:  David Dulceany (Romance Studies, Duke University)
Sponsored by the Forum for Scholars and Publics, the Program in Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies, Romance Studies, the Franklin Humanities Institute, the Center for Documentary Studies, the Duke Center for International & Global Studies, the Dean of Humanities, and the DHRC@FHI.
