Event Details

Gender and sexuality have been central issues for activism and transnational affiliations. At the same time, they are often used by governments and nongovernmental organizations alike to reinforce the very forms of hierarchy and hegemony that activists seek to break down. This teach-in will examine movement building, organizing strategies, and best practices for creating feminist, queer, and anti-racist solidarity politics that challenge, rather than reproduce, global relations of power and inequality. Following the Teach-In, activists from around the world will gather on April 10 and 11 for the Homonationalism and Pinkwashing Conference organized by the Center for Gay and Lesbian Studies at CUNY. BCRW’s teach-in will both help build up to the conversation at the CUNY conference and expand beyond its parameters to explore: indigenous organizing, human rights regimes, South-South alliances, transnational feminist networks, diaspora politics, settler colonialisms, occupation, and more. We will engage praxis from many different scholar-activist fields as we work through the difficulties, dilemmas, and promises of solidarity activism.


This event is free and open to the public. Registration is strongly encouraged, but no one will be turned away. Venue is wheelchair accessible. Image courtesy of Marjolein Katsma, CC-SA.
