This panel was part of the Virtual PoleCon 2020 event held on October 17, 2020.
Queer Polers – Navigating Gender and Sexual Orientation in the Pole Industry led by Kate E. Gaga: This panel discussion features polers working in different aspects of the industry – instructors, studio owners, students, and performers. What do they have in common? All have an identity under the queer “umbrella” (sometimes referred to as “LGBTQIA+”). Stop by to ask questions and talk pronouns, queer bodies, and how pole dance relates to the panelists’ identities. Moderated by Kate E. Gaga (they/them).
