Events and sexualities

Chapter


Abstract


  • This chapter explores the relationships between events and sexualities. Particular attention is given to introducing five key terms in the literature: (i) impacts; (ii) the body; (iii) sexuality; (iv) pride; and (v) the closet. The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras serves as a case study with which to illustrate conceptual and empirical understandings identified in the literature review. The chapter concludes by drawing out the ramifications of the discussion for festival and events management policies and practices.
