Queer Food Conference 2024

What is queer food? What makes food queer?

We are pleased to announce a hybrid conference on queer food and drink to be held at Boston University from April 27- 28, 2024. This conference will bring together scholars, activists, artists, journalists, and food industry professionals.

The conference includes a mixture of panels, roundtables, and workshops. Topics include but are not limited to: LGBTQIA2S+ cookbooks, farming and land movements, bars, cafes, drinks, potlucks, food advertising, restaurant management, catering, brewing, food writing, health, care, community building, and more. See the conference schedule here:

The conference will be hybrid. In-person panels, workshops, and roundtables will be live-streamed. There will also be some virtual panels, workshops, and roundtables (projected live into the conference). Please note that some activities, such as the group meals and field trips within Boston, will be in-person only.

The in-person conference will take place at 808 Commonwealth Avenue in the Food Studies Programs suite, which is just two blocks from the Amory Street Station on the MBTA Green Line.
