Sonj Basha will kickoff LGBTQIA Week with a discussion on “Islamahomophobia: Why Visibility Matters.”
One of the most powerful tools of oppression is division. How can the Queer* community become stronger by bringing parts of itself closer together? We can begin to empower ourselves to resist marginalization in our own movement and combat institutional violence by fighting for justice at the intersections of our identities.
Location: Building 7
