RAFIKI film screening

Friday, March 29, 2019 - 6:00pm

Uptown Campus
Freeman Auditorium, Woldenburg Art Center

Bursting with the colorful street style & music of Nairobi’s vibrant youth culture, RAFIKI is a tender love story between two young women in a country that still criminalizes homosexuality. Kena and Ziki have long been told that “good Kenyan girls become good Kenyan wives” - but they yearn for something more. Despite the political rivalry between their families, the girls encourage each other to pursue their dreams in a conservative society. When love blossoms between them, Kena and Ziki must choose between happiness and safety.
Initially banned in Kenya for its positive portrayal of queer romance, RAFIKI won a landmark supreme court case chipping away at Kenyan anti-LGBT legislation. This event is co-sponsored by GESS, NCI, and Africana Studies.

Rethinking School Shooters: Queer Futures, Gay Panic, and the Right to Victimization, a Lecture by Dr. Rachel Levitt

Anna Many Lounge, Caroling Richardson Building

Rethinking School Shooters: Queer Futures, Gay Panic, and the Right to Victimization
A lecture by Dr. Rachel Levitt, Assistant Professor of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies at Kansas State University
3:30pm on March 28, 2019
Anna Many Lounge, Caroline Richardson Building
Some of the most well-known school shooting cases have used the legal defense that the shooter was justified because he was retaliating against the homophobic bullying he endured. However, unlike the bullying cases that center young gay people's experiences with homophobic harassment, these school shooters' defenses require a different relationship to sexuality, race, and gender. In this talk, Rachel Levitt will highlight three school shooter cases and what they reveal about the law, homophobia, racism, and who is seen as a victim. 
Rachel Levitt is an Assistant Professor in the Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies Department at Kansas State University. Dr. Levitt earned their PhD in American Studies from the University of New Mexico with dual graduate certificates in Women Studies, and Race and Social Justice. Their research focuses on the subjects of queer liberation and places those subject formations into historical, social, and legal context. 
This lecture is sponsored by Newcomb College Institute and the Gender and Sexuality Studies Program
