Urban space: Sexual health and desire

  • Zeitz MOCAA, V&A Waterfront Cape Town (map)

This session explores how we can come to understand the important interface between the urban environment and the health needs of LGBT groups.

Based on the experiences of researchers and LGBT organisations in Cape Town, this session looks at: the various ways in which urban space can be read as heteronormative; the opportunities LGBT groups can have to overcome and challenge such heteronormativity; and the impact such dynamics have on addressing health needs for LGBT groups in the city.
