Decolonisation and Decriminalisation as Queer Liberation(Past)
Queer liberation is a multi-faceted cause which needs an understanding of nuance and interlocking oppressions. This session focused on how the broad need for decolonisation and the specific need for decriminalising queer identity are part of the same struggle for equity and justice.
It was led by Ibtisam Ahmed, a queer academic and activist of colour whose work is based on decolonial utopianism, and who has campaigned on this matter directly at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings, the University of Nottingham Students' Union, and Nottinghamshire Pride.
