As the annual Pride parade and celebration approaches, Baltimore Racial Justice Action (BRJA) will examine how Black liberation and Same-Gender-Loving, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans/Transitioning, Queer/Questioning (SGL/LGBTQ) movements have intersected in the country and in Baltimore.
How do sexuality and gender show up in Black experiences?
How is the “gender binary” rooted in white supremacy?
How do we find power in the terminology we use to identify
ourselves, and where does that terminology come from?
Who shapes dialogues about Black SGL/LGBTQ lives?
Is there space at the table for all of us?
We invite folks into a series of fishbowl conversations
facilitated by BRJA and local SGL/LGBTQ leaders about the intersections of race, sexuality, and gender, and what it means to find and attain collective liberation.
