Decolonising Sexuality Festival

06/09/2018

During this two day festival, we are seeking to investigate the intertwinement of sexuality and our various identity markers and the impact and legacy of colonialism, all while centering the voices and experiences of people of colour in these important discussions. The festival will consist of panel discussions, workshops, film and art screenings, stalls for sale of artwork and other goods, mingling and networking, and artist performances of various disciplines!

***This is a QTPOC accessible space. In this case, we are seeking to create a safe, non discriminatory space. While all those who are aligned with the values and mission of the festival are welcome, we would like to emphasize the importance of centering the voices and experience of marginalised voices of colour. Organisers of the festival will be visible and engaged during the entirety of the festival and can be contacted to step in and facilitate any potential issues. 

Accessibility: The SOAS student Union is an accessible venue for wheelchair access. The main entrance labelled College Buildings has a small flight of steps and a ramp for entrance. Accessible toilets are on each floor. A full description of access can be found here: https://bit.ly/2IkZyeT
