Watch our Economics of Queerness series now!
Organised and facilitated by June Bellebono, these three conversations explore the way LGBTQ+ Black people and people of colour create alternative economic systems: outside of the state, across generations and trespassing borders.
Economics of Queerness: Organising for Solidarity Systems
In the first Economics of Queerness panel, community organisers Amanda Kamanda, Roberto Tovar and Shash Appan explore solidarity systems and how we share resources when the State doesn’t look out for us.
Sexual health, trans healthcare and migrant rights are three spheres that the State actively sabotages. Our guests discusses the challenges within this work alongside the joys they’ve discovered building community.
Economics of Queerness: Organising Across the Decades
For our second Economics of Queerness panel, we sit down with Ted Brown, Tobi Adebajo and Poulomi Desai who have been fighting for queer and trans liberation across generations.
They shared their experiences of organising during different cultural climates, what’s changed in the ways LGBTQ+ BPOC gather, and one of the joys they’ve found in their work.
Economics of Queerness: Organising Across Borders
In the last event of the series, Raven Gill, Ricki Kgoisitau and Yren Rotela Ramirez join us from across the globe to discuss organising for trans liberation.
What does transness look like in different contexts and what are the specific ways in which these activists respond to its challenges? What beautiful and unique ways do different communities show up for one another and share resources? What are the opportunities for building a global trans solidarity movement?
