Kerryn Drysdale

Kerryn Drysdale is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Social Research in Health, located within UNSW Arts and Social Sciences. Her disciplinary background is in gender studies, queer theory and cultural studies, with a particular focus on LGBTIQ social scenes, identities and practices. Kerryn's current area of research lies at the intersection of social inquiry and public health, particularly in the experiences and expressions of health and wellbeing among same-sex attracted and sex/gender diverse people, people who use drugs, and people living with or affected by HIV and/or viral hepatitis. Kerryn is also interested in community-led approaches to harm reduction and urban LGBTIQ night-time economic reform.
