Queer & Desi: Exploring LGBTQ issues in the South Asian Community
Gita Mehrotra, FREE, Workshop

As a community-based organization, Tasveer sees this as an opportunity to spark dialogue, consciousness-raising, and skill-building around queer issues within the South Asian community.

The focus of the workshop will be to provide a space for participants to engage with basic training and dialogue regarding issues of gender identity and sexual orientation in a South Asian context. This will include: critical self-reflection about our own values regarding gender, sexuality, and LGBT communities, basic terminology and language, discussion about homophobia and heterosexism, and conversations about how to work in alliance with South Asian LGBTQ communities.

We highly recommend this workshop for audience members who plan to attend one or more of the LGBTQ programs in ISAFF. The workshop will prepare you to better understand and engage with the ideas presented in these programs.

Workshop is limited to 20 participants and is FREE. Pre-registration is required. Email Gita Mehrotra to register for the workshop.
