Back Events » Vietnam Queer History Month 2019: VIETNAM QUEER HISTORY MONTH – FROM FAG TO FAB @ Quán Cầm


Vietnam Queer History Month (VQHM) is a series of activities to raise awareness for the young queers in Hanoi and the society, about the presence of the LGBT community in Vietnamese history. Queer’s love and life along the stretch of history will be reproduced in various forms such as exhibitions, workshops and online media. The knowledge and the presence of queer community will help to reinforce the pride of Queer identity, as well as being the persuasive reasons for the recognition of queer community.

To different people from different walks of life with different background, history is more than just a flow of events. Each and every one of us has our own take and our own interpretation of those milestones, of those stories. That’s why, this year, Vietnam Queer History Month and Hanoi Queer desire to take a deep look into the history of all the words, the terms, the phrases, the notions, of the language used by the LGBT community, as a part of our queer culture.

By bringing you a various range of activities from exhibition and talk show, Vietnam Queer History Month 2019 is a journey into the history of language: from the practice of language, reclaiming the cultural spaces of our own to reaffirming our identity and therefore, restating our stand in society. We hope that through all of that, you get a better insight of such a community with its own rich and prideful history.
