Fighting for the visibility and rights of lgbtiq* Africans @ Rathaus, Wien [18. Mai]

Fighting for the visibility and rights of lgbtiq* Africans

18:00 - 21:00

Friedrich-Schmidt-Platz 1, 1010 Innere Stadt, Wien, Austria
Many LGBTIQ+ Africans face discrimination, violence, persecution, stigma and exclusion on a daily basis – from family members, employers, places of worship and the society at large. These forms of hostility tend to take a negative toil on the physical, social and mental health and wellbeing of the LGBTIQ+ population.
However, discrimination and hostility towards LGBTIQ+ Africans are not restricted to the continent but can also be found within the Austrian LGBTIQ+ communities, in and around African LGBTIQ+ communities in Austria and throughout various sectors such as employment, education and health care.
How can we create more awareness for the intersectionality of racism and homo-/bi-/transphobia? How can we… empower the fight for visibility and rights of LGBTIQ+ Africans? How can we join forces and work towards a supportive and inclusive society?
We are happy to host this event in cooperation with Afro Rainbow Austria — the first organisation established by and for African LGBTIQ+ in Austria.
