While the concept of intersectionality was originally rooted in raising awareness of the experiences of women of colour in particular, it is now a term that has come to refer to the complex relationship among various marginalized identities, such as sexuality or ability. This webinar features a panel discussion of individuals who will share their experiences as members of the LGBTQ2+ community as well as being a racialized person. In addition, some will share stories of their religious identities through the lens of their race and sexuality. In illuminating these stories, we will come to understand how to be respectful of people’s backgrounds, especially of individuals who negotiate complex systemic barriers.
