The Study Group: Unpacking Gender Constructs & Celebrating AAPI LGBTQ Activism

It's Pride Month! At our June Study Group, we'll be celebrating and discussing the AAPI LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and more) community. We want to unpack how Western gender binary norms and colonization has shaped our understandings of gender and sexuality.

At this Study Group, we will have a brief 101 presentation, listen to spoken word by DarkMatter, a collaboration between Janani Balasubramanian and Alok Vaid-Menon who are Indian American and of queer and trans experience, and spend time in small discussion groups.

Thursday, June 27th
6:30 PM at NAPAWF*NYC's offices (39 Eldridge Street)
Wheelchair accessible | Dinner will be provided.
