Many issues are impacting us as Black LGBTQ/SGL people. Sometimes they are the same challenges that faced our elders during the Civil Rights Movement, sometimes they show up in the Black Lives Matter or the increased murders of trans women or some religious types still hurting us. We know many of us are still last hired/first fired and disparate treatment in health, and wealth are still the norm. So many issues didn't go away for us because of marriage equality. So how do we cope? How do we rise above?
Let's talk about it. Join us in a facilitated discussion on issues that impact us in our Panelists in their 20s, 30s, 40s. 50s. 60s, and 70s and from the arts,political, legal, transgender, women's, faith-based, the housing/homelessness communities, will lead the discussion on how lessons learned in the past can jettison us into a quality future. Interactive audience participation on how we can successfully withstand and rise above the challenges facing us as queer people in our smaller communities, and share as a model to the nation as a whole.
