Connecting the dots: Diversity and Inclusion in LGBTIQ Communities
The question if there’s such thing as ONE queer community or multiple communities comes up often. Should we strive for unity – or would it lead to uniformity and silencing peoples perspectives? How can we strengthen true diversity and inclusion, how can we amplify each other's voices in solidarity?
At this talk, we want to exchange thoughts, new perspectives and more in different ways. Our guests will share their experiences in different ways.
