16.00–17.00 – The spaces between genders in contemporary culture lecture series (Jyväskylä University C-building, C5, Seminaarinkatu 15) (in Finnish)

Difficult genderlessness (in Finnish, Joonas Säntti, grant researcher)
In the last 20 years the visibility of gender minorities, as well as the multitude of different gender identities has grown rapidly. As the number of categories grows, does it create more freedom? The lecture will discuss some of the variations on the theme in contemporary queer literature as well as ponder on how literature can work against naming and finding gender. As a literature researcher specializing in prose, I will examine how fiction can bring out the contentiousness of the terminology used in gender activism.

The politics of categories, and holy existence (in Finnish, Heidi Kosonen, grant researcher)
Both the closet and the liberation of the gender system are often discussed in relation to taboo, the power of the taboo, and breaking them. But what has taboo to do with gender and sexuality? The lecture will examine this theme from the perspective of taboo theory as well as reflect on the reparative possibilities inherent in gender categories and the spaces between them, from the viewpoint of anthropological and visual cultural studies.

17.00–19.00 – Mental health themed peer meetup for queer people (in Finnish) (The Civic Activity Center Matara, meeting room Talvikki, Matarankatu 6 A 1)
Depressed by marginalization? Distressed by attitudes? In this peer support group everyone can share their experiences with mental problems that they have encountered as a member of a sexual/gender minority. Often the problems stem from negative attitudes, discrimination, bullying and other experiences of otherness or exclusion. The discussion is confidential and everyone can share as much or as little as they feel comfortable with. We will be sharing different ways of reinforcing and supporting your own well being. The group is open to everyone, but if you are in an acute crisis, we recommend discussing your situation with the group leader before participating. The group is based on peer support and doesn’t function as a substitute for therapy. However you can discuss different options for seeking therapy with the group leader after the meeting.

The first meeting is part of Jyväskylä Pride 2019. Jyväskylän Seta ry will aim at starting the group in autumn 2019 with Kaisa Tilli, with a regular schedule. More information at the first meetup.

The group leader is queer psychologist Kaisa Tilli, who has experience with mental health work with children, teens and adults. You may pre-register in or just turn up. Send your registration to: kaisatilli@gmail.com.

The first meeting, held during Pride, will be in Finnish. If you are interested in joining the group when it starts regular meetings in autumn, and Finnish isn’t your first language, please contact Kaisa Tilli.

18.00–20.30 – JKL Pride x Arktisen upeeta presents: Arkki + author panel (in Finnish) (Ravintola Ilokivi, Keskussairaalantie 2)
Arkki was premiered at Finncon in July 2019 and is the newest source of pride in the Jyväskylä DIY-movie scene. Written, directed, shot and edited by Paavo Ylämäki, the movie is “momentarily meditative, but always flowing story about loss, identity and artificial intelligence” (Finncon 2019) and it represents the more ambitious side of small-budget movies with its mind bending story, sci-fi elements and its bold, lyrical storytelling.

After the movie, the people involved with the production take part in a panel, discussing, and answering audience questions.
