‘We’ve (always been) here, we’ve (always been) queer, get over it’
In their bid to maintain power, colonial regimes resorted not only to military force but imposed and controlled the identity of their subjects both at home and abroad. Anti-LGBTQ+ legislation and social values were a core element of colonial power. Today homosexuality remains criminalized in many countries, and new waves of anti-trans legislation and broader LGBTQ+ discrimination are taking hold in Europe and North America. How can we redefine and reclaim gender, sexuality, and identity in the context of colonialism?
In celebration of Pride, Paths to Action brings together an international panel of LGBTQ+ activists working to re-queer identity. Join us for the discussion.
