International Queer conference Call for Programs: “Tabla:Drumming Our Way Into Queerness,” being held at UCR on Jan 18th. Our purpose is to build coalitions between Queer and Trans* students and allies who have ties to South Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and neighboring countries.

This conference intends to *assemble more collaboration with youth and youth organizers, *elevate knowledge about our homelands and respond to U.S. foreign policies in those regions, *unpack queerness, trans identity, and homosexuality in the family, *redefine national identity, gender expressions, masculinity and femininity, *deepen and recognize the complexities within these women’s, men’s, transgender spaces, and queer spaces, *heal oppression through artistic expression, and provide education and knowledge through film screenings, lectures, and workshops.

Call for programs and registration is now open!
