I’m Not Gay, I’m Angry: An Intersectional Overview of Contemporary LGBTQ2+ Activism at Halifax North Memorial Public Library (2285 Gottingen Street)
This workshop will guide participants through the basics of contemporary North American LGBTQ2+ activist movements, as well as the legacy of this struggle that exists in these communities to this day. In an effort to underline the multiple discriminations of LGBTQ2+ people of colour, particular focus will be placed on the (often erased) racialized aspects of these struggles.
This session is open to everyone, with priority to queer and trans people, especially QTBIPOC.
About the presenter: Vincent Mousseau (they/them) is a Black, queer, and trans community organizer, educator, and activist based in Tio’tia:ke (Montréal). Their current areas of research surround the creation of intergenerational and intersectional LGBTQ2+ spaces, as well as the barriers that African, Caribbean, and Black men who have sex with men face in the Canadian blood donation system.
