Intersectional social justice feminism* has long been at the root of the movement for LGBTQI justice. From the trans women of color who stood up to violent policing of LGBTQI people and spaces to the leadership of Black and brown lesbians and Bi+ women that paved the way for many of our core LGBTQI organizations and foundations, we stand on the shoulders of women. Yet, as the movement for LGBTQI equality professionalized, the leadership of women of color was pushed to the margins. In this session, we will name and examine the underfunding of work by and for women and have an honest conversation about why many women of color do not feel at home in the LGBTQI movement. We will amplify the leadership of our movement’s LGBTQI women of color across generations and explore the effects of investing in their leadership. Through a dynamic, provocative, honest and undoubtedly humorous group conversation among brilliant and bold changemakers, this plenary will deepen the audience’s understanding of gender justice, racial justice, and LGBTQI liberation.
*please note that all mentions of feminism, gender justice, and women are fully inclusive of trans, nonbinary, and intersex women
