The term “Queer” is often used as a broad umbrella term for the LGBTQIA+ community. But the term not only describes sexual and gender identities, it is also a politic, a way of being and operating in the world. In this episode we’ll discuss queerness as both a form of identity and a particular politic that aims to defy the limits of prescribed norms and structures in favor of more expansive ways of being in relation and in community with one another. We’ll examine how these ways of being not only have implications for those who identify as queer, but also for how we all conceive of what’s possible in the way of justice and community-building. Roundtable guests for this conversation include Jude Feng, Dr. Jessica Davenport, and Janae Ariel.
