SKEPTICS: CERYS BRADLEY - A UNIFYING THEORY OF GAY
Thu 27 Jun 2019 at: 19:30 to 21:30
Winchester Discovery Centre, Jewry Street, Winchester

Basingstoke Friends members are invited to join Bob at the talk hosted by Winchester Skeptics In The Pub. Tonight's talk is titled “A Unifying Theory of Gay” and is hosted by Cerys Bradley.

Winchester Skeptics hosts a guest speaker on the last Thursday of every month. They provide an opportunity for people who are interested in science, skepticism, rationalism and critical thinking to socialise and discuss matters of interest.

WHAT'S THE EVENING ABOUT?
For decades, science has been fascinated by the LGBTQ+ community. What makes gay people gay? How does sexuality affect one's behaviour, appearance, or ability to raise children? These are the questions that science has asked and the answers have had an impact not only within the scientific world, but also on public policy and the rights of LGBTQ+ citizens. Given the highly politicised nature of the topic, it is perhaps not surprising to discover biases and prejudices hidden in the construction, conduction, and conclusions of these studies but are they still valuable contributions to science?

PhD student (and lesbian) Cerys Bradley will discuss the scientific research into the LGBTQ+ community as well as its societal implications, and ask "just because science can ask a question, should it?".

THE VENUE:
Tonight the suggested donation (at the door) for each talk is £5 which doubles as an entry into a book raffle.

The Licensed front cafe bar at the Winchester Discovery Centre area will be open from 7.00pm. The talks for Winchester Skeptics in the Pub start at 7.30pm in the main theatre.

SKEPTICS IN THE CURRY HOUSE ...
After the show, there is a group of Skeptics who go to the nearby Gurkha Inn for a late night curry. Everyone is welcome to join in if there is space ... it is first come, first served on spaces.

This event is hosted by the Winchester Skeptics in the Pub

 
MEETING:     In the bar at the front of the Discovery Centre
COST:     £5 on the door
