Keynote Address

An Intersectional Queer Movement: From Awareness to Action!

How can we insure that our queer organizations are intersectional? Do we even understand what ‘Intersectionality’ is? This talk will remind us that in addition to being queer activists we must be social justice activists too, fighting for equity for all. The reality is that adopting an intersectional framework is not an easy process. It involves seeking to understand things that are difficult, empathizing with people who are not like you, stepping back instead of speaking over others and opening yourself up to a high level of accountability. If you’re doing it right, it should be challenging you, stretching you, and making you uncomfortable. The complexity of an intersectional queer movement is a difficulty and discomfort that is meant to inspire change.

A recording of the Keynote Address is now available.
