logo_aagEvery year, the AAG (Association of American Geographers) hosts an Annual Meeting to showcase the latest research in Geography, sustainability and GIS. This year the Annual Meeting is taking place in Tampa, Florida, from 8th to 12th April.

A number of sessions focus on LGBT people and spaces, including Trans* Geographies, Queer of Colour Geographies, and Challenging Hetero/Homonormativities in Homespaces.

In addition, Dr Lynda Johnston (University of Waikato) will give a paper on intersex bodies and geographies of prejudice; Dr Eleanor Wilkinson (University of Leeds) will present her research on queer temporalities and the politics of non-reproduction; and Dr Nathaniel Lewis (University of Nottingham) will give a paper on migration and wellbeing in the gay life course.

I will be tweeting from the conference so follow @SotonLGBT and @CarlaGeog on Twitter for updates.
