Black ‘N Proud – My Queer Culture

Friday 30th October 2015

Minorities in a minority face some of the worse discrimination and stigma in society. As part of Black History Month, this event aims to start a conversation about the intersection of BAME issues with other marginalizations (e.g., issues to do with working class, women, LGBTIQ+). The event will share ideas for inclusion and equality of all individuals regardless of race, gender, health status, background, sexual orientation or gender identity.

Keynote speakers will present 15 minute talks on issues including:
1. How to advocate for inclusion and equality of all persons
2. Being BAME, LGBT*IQ and having faith (open to Christian, Muslim, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, etc). Other issues pertinent to the lives of queer of color individuals
3. Other intersectional issues for BAME community

These talks will then be followed by a Panel Discussion and an Open Space Discussion.

A sandwich buffet and soft drinks will be served before the talks at 17.00 – 18 .00 for networking.

Please register to attend here (tickets are free).
