LGBTQIA+ Activism in Africa and the Diaspora: Transnational Perspectives on Community and Solidarity

19 Oct 2022


Announced by the University of Pittsburgh:

Join us for a Zoom panel discussion featuring activists and scholars involved in activism and organizing around LGBTQIA+ communities and rights across the African continent and diaspora. Panelists will discuss: What are common misconceptions about LGBTQIA+ experiences from your perspective? What does solidarity look like, and what are fruitful ways for activists and supporters to approach transnational solidarity? What are recommendations for how activists and scholars in the Global North may engage with LGBTQIA+ communities and movements in ways that do not reproduce the imperialist gaze or a universalist perspective? Panelists: Dr. Wunpini Fatimata Mohammed, Abdellah Taïa, Mumbi Kanyogo, Rev. Dr. Kapya John Kaoma (moderator).
