Queer Students of Colour Discussion

Friday, March 21, 2014 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

 

• How do you begin conversations with the people in your life about your experiences as a queer person and/or a person of colour?

• Do you face language/cultural barriers in describing your queer identity and experiences?

• What role does culture & race play in your relationships?

Join us on March 21, the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, for a discussion circle and social for students of colour to talk about how sexuality and race affects our lives and communities. This discussion will focus on how we begin conversations about our queer identities with ourselves, our lovers, our family and our communities. Come and engage in discussions about our lives that challenge racism, homophobia and transphobia.

This discussion and social is organized as part of an ongoing series to invite LGBTQ students of colour and students questioning their gender and sexual orientation together in a confidential space to build community, share stories and new ideas. Come and tell us what you think would help to create more positive spaces and more inclusive conversations!

Snacks will be provided.

Some students will be heading out after the discussion for an optional dinner after the discussion to be held at The Real Thai (350 Bloor St. W.).

This event is supported by the U of T Sexual & Gender Diversity Office and Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office.
