Belgium: BePax to offer cycle of conferences on race, gender and sexual orientation starting in February

 

10/2/19 - Beginning in February, BePax will offer a cycle of conference on Race, Gender & Sexual Orientation, with the first one entitled, "Instrumentalisation of Minorities by the Media and Politics" on 21 February. 

Three identities, three categories that lead to sometimes convergent and sometimes divergent struggles. If some of these individuals are discriminated against on the basis of these three criteria, within minority or minority communities, some are marginalised and excluded.

The event takes place on 21 February from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at Pianofabriek - Rue du Fort, 35 to 1060 Saint-Gilles   

BePax in collaboration with Vie Feminine, Rainbowhouse, Coordination Holebi, and the Feminist Circle of the ULB offer a cycle of conferences where these three social categories will be addressed, sometimes jointly, to show the difficulty of conducting a common struggle when certain systems of domination are found in minority groups.
