crise e políticas queer Maio 21, 2012Posted by paulo jorge vieira in Uncategorized.

There can be little doubt that the political, social and cultural climate in the UK is undergoing significant change. Questioning this ‘new age of austerity’, relies on an (implicit) understanding of a previous era where something other than ‘cuts’ were occurring.
