Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw first coined the term intersectionality to describe the way that race and gender, among other identity categories, interact to shape the way that people who live with multiple marginalized identities experience themselves. In this Pride Talk, we invite several members of our 2SBIPOC community to share how their race and sexuality intersect. How do their experiences of race impact how they think about their sexuality, and vice versa? How can our community be more welcoming to non-white 2SLGBTQ+ people?
Join host and moderator Sobia Ali-Faisal and panelists Amirah Oyesegun, Mengyu Zang, and Evelyn Bradley for a live and interactive discussion presented as part of PEI's Pride Festival 2020.
Safer Space Agreement:
Pride PEI is dedicated to providing space that is accessible, inclusive, and free from oppression, harassment, and discrimination. In this space, we will treat each other with respect and dignity, regardless of age, race, gender expression, gender identity, sexual orientation, levels of ability, and all our other diverse identities. Everyone entering this space has a responsibility to uphold these values.
Pride PEI and the PEI Pride Festival operate in Mi’kma’ki, the homeland of the Mi’kmaq People. We recognize that the land on which we gather is the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq First Nation, and we pay our respects to the Indigenous Mi’kmaq people of this territory: past, present, and future. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” with Mi’kmaq Peoples.
