The Lavender Languages & Linguistics conference series has a rich history of examining language use and representation in relation to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans* and/or queer life, as well as language and sexuality more broadly. In April 2017, LavLang will be held in the UK for the first time, having been hosted annually by American University (Washington, D.C.) since 1993.
