Intersections of Hate: Trans Exclusionary Radical Feminism (TERF) and the Far Right
Date: 1:00pm - 5:00pm PDT June 8, 2018 Location: Q Center
Together, attendees of this workshop will explore the ways in which socio-political and ideological attitudes regarding gender diverse and transgender people has evolved in the 20th and 21st centuries—from that of disbelief and indifference, to psycho-medical curiosity and eventually, intersectional intolerance, discrimination, oppression, condemnation and political opportunism.
This interactive session will provide attendees with a greater scope of understanding surrounding the evolving social dynamic in which transgender people of all ages must navigate.
This workshop is part of the Portland United Against Hate training series and is free and open to the public.
