Workshop zum Thema Mikroaggressionen (bei LeTRa)
Members of the LGBTQIA+ community are underrepresented in society. This lack of representation tends to favor microaggressions, which we define as conscious or unconscious actions or situations leading to the creation of a hostile environment. Microaggressions can be either verbal (e.g. “Oh you are trans? I couldn't tell, you look like a real woman! ”), behavioral (e.g. assuming someone's gender pronouns) or environmental (e.g. a place with only gendered toilets). These microaggressions happen everywhere: at work, in public spaces or in private. Despite their seemingly “micro” nature, microaggressions have a significant impact on our mental health.
In this workshop, we will go over the different types of microaggressions, understand their impact, and propose hands-on strategies to deal with it. While participants will have the opportunity to share their best victory stories, we will also focus on strategies that didn't work, and together try to find a way for everyone to feel more confident when faced with such challenging situations.
Der Workshop findet am 7.3., 19:30-21:30 bei Letra in der Angertorstraße statt, Veranstalter ist International Queer Meetup Munich.
