The OutReach LGBT Community Center, 2701 International Lane, will host “Discussion on Race, Privilege and Racism in the Queer Community” on Saturday, March 25, 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Please join us for a deep and engaging conversation about race, privilege and racism within the queer community. This workshop will highlight how we, as queer people, can perpetuate racism and white supremacy with or without realizing it (in our dating, our workplaces, friendships, etc.).
Learn how to recognize these instances and how to interrupt them within ourselves and within our spheres of influence. Attendees will be challenged to recognize their own privilege (race, gender identity, gender, ability, etc.) and will leave with action steps on how to move forward.
The facilitators, Johanna Heineman-Pieper and Shawna Lutzow, will draw from personal experiences and share examples from their own lives and relationship as an interracial queer couple.
This workshop is hosted and sponsored by Outreach LGBTQ Center and cosponsored by Groundwork and Ethnic Studies Association – Edgewood College.
This workshop is intended for people who identify as queer. Please respect this intentionally queer space.
