Kerryn Drysdale is a Research Associate at the Centre for Social Research in Health, located within UNSW Arts and Social Sciences. Her disciplinary background is in cultural studies, with a particular focus on LGBTQ social scenes, identities and practices. Her doctoral research examined the link between social participation and social meaning for lesbian and queer women when a cultural phenomenon fades via a case study of Sydney's drag king scene. Kerryn's current area of research is in drug and sex practice in social settings, but remains interested in policy responses to substance use among same-sex attracted and sex/gender diverse people and urban LGBTQ night time economies.
