No Pride in Racism


A community panel on sexualised racism in LGBTIQA+ communities

LGBTIQA+ community leaders share their thoughts and perspectives on sexualised racism in the community. From fighting stigmatising language on apps and online dating spaces, to responding to microaggressions, and fetishisation of racial identities.

This panel will share experiences of queer people of colour, culture, and faith. This event is open to people of all racial and cultural backgrounds.
