POSTPONED! Gentrification, LGBTQ2SI+ Communities and Modes of Resistance
February 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
***PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED!***
Unfortunately this workshop has been postponed until May or June. The facilitator was coming from out of town, but unfortunately had to cancel this weekend. We will post an update when we know the exact date.
Centre for Gender Advocacy
1500 de Maisonneuve West, suite 404
(Metro Guy Concordia)
In this workshop, participants will explore dominant discourses about neighbourhoods and gentrification, and how processes of gentrification and displacement relate to LGBTQ2SI+ communities. Together we will examine colonial discourses of neighbourhood “development/progress” and explore how LGBTQ2SI+ communities have been both complicit in supporting gentrification and victims of displacement ourselves. We will look at local and global examples of queer and trans resistance to gentrification and, as a group, generate ideas and discuss other tangible strategies for intervention in gentrification and associated displacement, with a focus on avoiding complicity/cooptation of LGBTQ2SI+ communities.
