Networking meeting for queer families of color

We are inviting queer families of color and rainbow families with refugee, migration and/or racism experience to a networking meeting.

We want to open up a space for encounters and exchange about our experiences, for your topics and needs, to initiate networking and strengthen togetherness as a queer family of color.

When: Saturday, November 12th, 11 am to 4 pm

Where: 44787 Bochum

The meeting is aimed at queer parents and caregivers who experience racial discrimination, for example because of their external appearance, their religious affiliation, nationality or residence status. Queer parents or caregivers of children who experience racism as well as black, indigenous and people of color who want to have children are also invited.

We offer the possibility of networking and exchange in common and in separate rooms (safer_r space for people of color).

Childcare will be provided.
