"I think the world will come to an end amid the general applause from all the wits who believe that it is a joke." - Søren Kierkegaard

In 2016 and 2017, LGBT homicides more than doubled those of previous years. In 2017, the US President Donald Trump attempted to ban transgender military personnel via twitter. The Doomsday clock is set at two minutes to midnight. In response, the Queer Cultures Research Seminar series (University of Cambridge) is holding a one day conference to address queer engagements with and resistances to the 'end times'.
