Focus on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community
2012-03-14

14 March 2012

The International Institute for Studies in Race, Reconciliation and Social Justice at the University of the Free State (UFS) will be presenting a week of events that will be used to launch monthly conversations about topics relevant to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) community.

This year, LGBTI Week is scheduled to coincide with Human Rights Day in order to emphasise the importance of human rights for all LGBTI people in South Africa.

These critical conversations will include narrative contributions from LGBTI and heterosexual staff and students as well as theoretical discussions on LGBTI identity expressions, constitutional rights, “in/visibility” and inclusivity within the South African society.

Queer theory and other social justice perspectives around sexual orientation and multiple identity approaches will underpin the discussions. These conversations will provide a platform for the heterosexual and LGBTI communities to reconcile stereotypical and deeply decisive beliefs about LGBTI identities.
 

Programme for the LGBTI Week (starting on 19 March 2012).
