Queer and Now Conference - At Home In the Intersections
12:00 pm to 4:30 pm
Queer and Now is an annual conference at De Anza that focuses on the larger and local LGBTQ+ community, along with student success, equity, intersectionality and social justice concerns.
It has now been over a year of pandemic, distance learning, and the continuation of racialized and gendered violence. Since most of us have been working and learning from home, this year we want to take time to think about what “home” means to us. How do we create a sense of home for our beautiful intersecting identities? We recognize that home might not be just a physical space, but a mental, psychological, and/or spiritual space where we can find community and experience joy. This conference will explore the various ways we can feel at home in the world, in our bodies, and in ourselves.
This year's keynote speaker will be adrienne maree brown, a writer, advocate and cohost of the podcasts "Octavia's Parables," "Emergent Strategy" and "How to Survive the End of the World. (Photo credit: Anjali Pinto)
