Panel: Shame Academy
Sat Nov 18, 13:15
Panel, Hackney Showroom, Free
The noise made around the 50th anniversary of partial decriminalisation this year has in many ways created the illusion that LGBTIQA+ people no longer suffer from stigmatisation. But this idea only applies to the most privileged among us, and it certainly doesn't account for the fact that, even if one doesn’t experience outward discrimination, most of us carry shame with us internally.
This panel talks about that shame, how it manifests, and how LGBTIQA+ individuals have overcome it across intersections of gender, sexuality, race, class and religion.
