How I survived the Gay Rights Movement as a Trans Person of Color

How does white supremacy & transphobia show up within organizations that are seeking to create space for the LGBTQ community? Are organizations who use intersectional frameworks doing better than those that speak about the community as a cohesive entity? This talk will examine stories within activism, academia, the non-profit industry and more. In an effort to re-center the ways we imagine the impact of our work, attendees will delve into the differences between allyship and accompliceship and gauge where they, and their work, might fit on that spectrum. Attendees will have the opportunity to actively engage with the material, learn about themselves (and others), and gain valuable information and strategies to begin the work of dismantling oppressive work models in their personal and professional lives.
