Queer/Kuir/Quare: Surviving and Thriving through Radical Negotiations of Identity
Thursday, November 8, 2018,6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST
Join us for a discussion on the identity negotiations of queer people of color (QPOC). Relegated to the margins of the margins, QPOC have to make choices everyday to survive and thrive. Their livelihood depends on how they name, perform and express their identities in a heterosexist, white supremacist, patriarchal capitalist society.
A reception begins at 6 p.m., catered by Mirna’s Cuban Cuisine.
This panel features Dr. Katie Acosta, Johanna Toruño, and Dr. Duane Khan. Dr. Acosta is a sociologist from Georgia State University studying Latinas with non-normative sexualities. A poet and visual artist living in New York, Johanna Toruño engages the public on topics of gender, race, sexuality and colonialism through her street art. Dr. Khan is the Assistant Director of the Counseling and Wellness Center at New College and conducts research on gay, bisexual and queer men of color.
