Q21: A Conversation Café – Race and Racism
November 15 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
– How does racism affect the way we access LGBTQ2SIA+ spaces and communities?
– What are the struggles you have experienced or witnessed when racism has been acknowledged and challenged in LGBTQ2SIA+ spaces and communities?
– How can we challenge racism in the communities we’re part of?
This week at Q21 we will be talking about race and racism in LGBTQ2SIA+ communities and beyond. We will discuss how race and culture help shape the spaces we are in and how racism impacts how we are able to navigate and take up those spaces. We will also discuss the importance of acknowledging and challenging racism collectively in our communities.
We are excited to welcome Sabera Esufali to facilitate this conversation! Sabera is the Coordinator of the Centre for Women and Trans People (CWTP) at UofT, a comfy drop-in space on campus focused on gender equity and committed to providing free support, referrals, resources and advocacy on issues of sexism, racism, colonialism, homophobia, transphobia, cissexism, ableism, ageism, violence, health, poverty and classism. The CWTP offers workshops, events, services, safer sex supplies, in-house library, peer support groups and programming. Current programming includes The Spice: Community Cooking & Lunch; and Resisting Oppression & Reclaiming Spirituality (ROARS).
