Daniel Marshall provides an illustrated talk about the ways we try to connect to the queer past. Drawing on examples from the exhibition ‘Friendship as a Way of Life’ including Macon Reed’s Eulogy for the Dyke Bar 2016 and Nikos Pantazopoulos' How to make a monument 2013 as well as material from the Australian Lesbian and Gay Archives’ collection and work, this talk reflects on practices of re-enacting the queer past as efforts to build intergenerational kinship.

Daniel's publications include the co-edited collections Secret Histories of Queer Melbourne (ALGA, 2011; reprinted 2018), two volumes on “Queering Archives” for Radical History Review (Duke UP, 2014; 2015), and Youth, Sexuality and Sexual Citizenship (Routledge, 2018).
