One of the things I’ve been saying for a while is that we need to have ongoing conversations and information dissemination events in Houston concerning TBLGQ issues.
Later today the group A Conversation For Colored Girls is sponsoring this event at the Obsidian Theater that seeks to jumpstart a dialogue about the lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer/questioning , intersex and asexual+ community.
So what’s A Conversation for Colored Girls? It’s a community nonprofit that meets once a month to present invigorating conversation that aims to create a safe space for all of those who identify as women, and women of color, to come together for transformative conversation.
It also asks the very valid question how can we move forward as a people if we leave so many people, and specifically people in the TBLGQIA community behind?
This month’s ‘No Letter Left Behind’ conversation hopes to dive into the semantics behind the LQBTQIA+ community and seeks to understand the significance of every letter representing the community and the people those letters represent
I agree with A Conversation For Colored Girls in the expressed sentiment that a lack of knowledge will never be an excuse for cruelty. As we explore each letter we gain a better understanding of everyone who lies on the spectrum. Opening our minds to appreciate the distinct people within the TBLGQIA+ community while showing the respect that is so seldom given, but always deserved.
This is your chance to ask questions and gain knowledge!
A Conversation For Colored Girls provides a safe space for such conversations as these. Come, share, and learn. The doors open for the Obsidian Theater and this AC4CG sponsored conversation start at 6:30 PM.
If you can, bring a friend. because this is a conversation that has needed to happen since the passage of HERO in May 2014 and its repeal with the help of sellout Black pastors colluding with white fundamentalists and Republicans in November 2015.
The Obsidian Theater is located at 3522 White Oak Dr, and hope to see you there.
