Public discussion with guests:
Whenever we view social structures through the lens of intersectionality, we must include the category of race in its core. We recognise that race is a social construct, but we also recognise that if we do not have it in the core of the analysis, we are unable to understand the full scope of racism, which is embedded in our society, political structures, and institutions. In the Slovenian LGBTIQ+ community, similar to as in wider society, we actually do not speak much about racism, and hence we also do not explicitly do much to fight it. At the core of every social justice and equality struggle must be an antiracist struggle; therefore, it is paramount that we delve into the dynamics of racisms that affect LGBTIQ+ communities. Together we will look at the intersections of race, ethnicity, and LGBTIQ+ identities, as well as at the manifestations of racism and discrimination at those intersections.
