The Ties That Bind: Coming Out, Family Acceptance, and Intergenerational Dialogue in Our Families of Color

For many queer people of color, our biological families are a strong source of identity and support. At the same time, we are often silenced about our queerness. This workshop is a chance to dialogue about queer people of color and our family members as we explore the issue of family acceptance. We’ll share personal stories and examine how acceptance is different for our families; how to create an intergenerational dialogue about racism and homophobia; how transphobia is active within our families of origin; and how LGBTQ organizations can make family acceptance part of their work in communities of color.

Note: Open to POC only.
