Tala Med at ArkDes: To move in our city as a queer person of color.
Join us from StreetGäris for an evening at ArkDes to hear about the experiences of Stockholm’s queer POC community and how it is to move in our city. We will also be touching upon the use of excessive force from authority figures and how media choose to report this.
As part of the Public Luxury exhibition, StreetGäris will set up Tala Med at Arkdes.
Tala Med is a listening series in which the ones who are often talked about, but seldom listened to, are offered a safe space where they can create their own narratives by forming the conversation. Tala Med has a zero tolerance policy for disrespect, bigotry and interruptions of any kind.
At StreetGäris we strongly believe in the importance of listening to and learning from each other’s experiences and it is with great honor that we present you with this opportunity to broaden your views.
We welcome you to come and listen, learn and thereby gain a broader understanding of what it means to be a queer person of color in Stockholm today. After the talk there will be room to ask questions to the panelists.
Moderator: Manel Rodrick.
