Wellness Leadership Institute: C.A.R.E Speaks Presents: Anti-Blackness and Racism Among LGBTQ+ Communities

Virtual (See event details)

This event has already occurred. The information may no longer be valid.

In this session, we discuss the supposed colorblindness that often claimed that “gay was the new Black,” ignoring the relationship between queer and Black activism as though they are separate communities and movements. Black Lives Matter challenges this either/or binary and centers both Blackness and queerness. Additionally, we examine how Black and other people of color have been integral and foundational organizers to what we know as the “Modern Gay Rights Movement” with figures such as Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Rivera, Storme DeLarverie, Bayard Rustin and many others.
