Queer Migrations: The LGBTQIA+ Diaspora

Wed 4/12/2023 • 10AM - 11:30AM PDT


Many in diasporas belong to the LGBTQIA+ community, including those who were forced to emigrate due to their gender identities and expressions and/or sexual orientations. This program discusses whether the LGBTQIA+ community can be considered its own diaspora and how their intersectional identities affect their experiences.
