The theory of intersectionality is a growing topic that describes the multiple layers and intersections of our varying identities. How do our intersecting identities influence the way we see and experience the world as Queer Indigenous, Black, People of Colour?
Join our panelists Cicely Belle Blain, Madeline Terbasket, Anas Qartoumeh, and moderator, Tariro Dzvairo as they explore this question and the ways in which they navigate their identities. This event will have discussion, performance, and Q&A components!
