What racism in our queer feminist circles? - Discussion
Let's talk about it, ask questions, let's say things, exchange.
As part of Queer Week, we are organizing a roundtable to talk about racism in queer, GPT and feminist circles.
Share and question our experiences, those of queer and racialized people who, in addition to living a double system of oppressions, face stigma and discrimination within an environment that generally claims anti-racism. We were particularly motivated to organize an event around these issues because of the many forms of violence that we may have experienced and / or witnessed in our own communities. In addition, the context of homophobic, lesbophobic and transphobic violence has opened the door to the expression of internalized racism, often suggesting that these attacks were committed by racialized individuals. What schemas and stereotypes are still to be deconstructed? Which behaviors are implicitly taboo or excluded? What anger is "acceptable"? Which language is valued? What privileges do you need to feel legitimate in answering these questions?
It is important to specify that we wanted, for this discussion, that the word could be given to queer racis.es in their diversity. Whether one has chosen to engage in a militant struggle, in an artistic work, in daily struggles made of a repetition of micro-violence, etc., everyone has the space to express themselves in the way he wants it and with the words thatiel chooses. Too often the word is given to those who pretend to master it, delegitimizing the expression of all the others who do not have "the words", whose diction is slow or difficult, whose French is not not the mother tongue, who do not have enough militant / academic background ...
