Community Activation explores the social sphere of the queer community.
Start Time: 13:00
Community Activation will look into the social sphere of the queer community. Why do labels exist? Finding your tribe is, for many, a big part of being queer in 2018. This sense of belonging is crucial to those who have been marginalized and isolated. The value of being heard and being around others who don’t question your existence is invaluable and will be explored and celebrated in this collection of shorts. At the same time, they will give insights into the divisions and debates that arise when the incredibly diverse spectrum of queer lives and identities come together as one community.
