This is an anti white supremacy event that acknowledges racial sexual preferences are racist. The voices of racialized gay and queer men who attend will be privileged in discussion. The event organizer and facilitator identifies as a queer white settler. The event is intended to be informal (no academic or professional experiences needed), and we aim to make it a space where everyone can feel safe, regardless of your age, race, gender, sexuality, disability or HIV status!
