INQUEERSECTIONS - Exploring queer activism across different contexts (14-16 February 2014, Utrecht, NL)

Location

Utrecht
Netherlands

This three-day festival invites to explore different queer activist struggles and strategies, and to think about what kind of alliances can be built around them. The festival is based on an idea that queer struggles and experiences always have to be seen not only as related to sexuality, oppression based on sexual orientation and gender, but also to other categories, such as race, class, ethnic background etc. that affect queer lives. In their own turn, these categories mark the lives of people that do not necessarily identify as or affiliate with the notion of queerness.

Race Revolt is "a zine on race politics by feminists and queers" with an emphasis on (anti-)racism, ethnicity, identity and a critical view on feminist/queer/DIY/punk activism and communities related to their own whiteness and ignorance of "race". Humaira Saeed (editor): "This is a beginning. A beginning of a much needed conversation that considers and addresses race within feminist, queer and diy communities and beyond. That considers the whiteness of these communities, that finds ways for us to move forward." So far five issues have been published, all of them can be read on the website
