In Solidarity: Queer Identities and Communities
Join us on February 21st at The Athenaeum in the Wilkie Room for the second event in our 2019 Indy Pride Educational Series, In Solidarity: Queer Identities and Communities!
From business practices and places of worship and hospital policies, how do various industries show up for queer identities and communities? How does the queer community stand in solidarity with trans, gender non-binary, and the multitude of queer identities and communities? How does solidarity differ from ‘allyship’ (if at all)—and is this difference useful?
