Within the LGBTQIA+-community there is often talk about “community” and about being more inclusive, both to queer/trans people, as well as to people of various heritage, race, and disability. But what does this really mean? And how can we really do this? In this talk, we will focus on how we can support each other in order to build communities that can embrace all members of the queer/trans spectrum, regardless of their heritage, race, body disability, or gender. And how realistic at all it is to actually do so.

The diverse FLINTA-panellists are specialists in their fields as social and cultural producers. With their knowledge and experiences, they will bring both constructive thinking to the talk as well as criticisms regarding what we can still improve in the mechanisms and tools presented to us in our respective home bases and systems.
