YOC_2

 

On May 23, 2014 GSAFE is hosting a day-long LGBTQ Youth of Color Leadership conference to create a space for LGBTQ youth of color and their allies to discuss what LGBTQ identities look like in their communities, identify the issues, and discuss ways to build! The conference will take place from 9am to 3pm, at the Dream Bank One North Pinckney | Madison WI 53703

Youth attending will use theater, games, and dialogue to critically engage topics such as: gender and sexuality expectations and cultural norms; intersections of race, class and sexuality; the impact of poverty, violence, prisons, immigration etc. in the LGBTQ experience. Youth will discuss and learn ways that their communities are resilient, as well as how to be successful in the face of adversity.

“[Words Hurt Week] helped me discover the importance of intersectionality within all social movements – recognizing that we cannot make progress within the queer community without also examining the systems that impact other oppressions.”
