Program

Description

This presentation will consider sexual identity as a space written on by self, family, culture, religion, and sate, and also examine ways heteronormative and conservative ideologies complicate and compromise LGBTQ identities. This session captures the Diversity Conference theme of spirituality, state, and politics with a particular focus on ways race, religion, and sexuality, intersect and inform personal and public freedoms. Through screening and discussion, the session aims to facilitate dialogue that promotes sensitivity to difference as we reach for equity across local and national spaces. Audience members will have the occasion consider lesbian identity within a larger subtext of GLBTQ rights and to question ways patriarchy as an extension of state, nation, and religion, reproduce and sanction white, heteronormative hegemony
