Profile Information

Painted street wall art in rainbow colours with words I am Gay I am a lesbian Iam Bisexual I am Transgender I am Just like you.... The Centre for Transforming Sexuality and Gender (CTSG) brings together researchers from across the University of Brighton who are working on themes related to sexuality, gender and social change with a core focus on producing research with community partners that impacts on policy and practice.

The CTSG has longstanding strengths in research relevant to LGBT Queer Lives as well as sex, sexuality and health, with other hubs of activity emerging. Many of our researchers have a shared commitment to feminist, post-structuralist and queer theoretical approaches and use a variety of methodologies that are participatory, visual and creative.

The centre offers researchers access to its own methodological space - The Creative Methods Lab - a brand-new and beautifully designed room where researchers meet to develop and conduct research, using state-of the-art visual and audio recording equipment. Centre activities are disseminated regularly via seminars and workshops. We also host a number of international conferences, and provide a lively and collegiate research culture to support doctoral students and academic staff alike.
