Queer-led Workshop 2022

Roopbaan supported a queer-led collective in organizing a team-building workshop. The event included a number of participants and took place over two days with four organizers. The workshop facilitated conversations on difficult topics (such as privilege, identity, power, intersectionality, consent, comfort) among people from diverse backgrounds, sexualities, genders, and mental health, etc. Participants were energized to imagine life outside oppressive systems – capitalism, patriarchy, heterosexism, etc. Facilitators held conversations on organizing and politics such as fund mobilizing and disbursement, personal safety and negotiations in the community, digital safety, and the role of community care. Participants developed ideas for how they will engage their own communities in further organizing.
