…Do you know these kind of comments? Although often performed as progressive, racist comments and behaviour are frequent in mainly white dominated queer spaces and strucutres. The construct of ‚muslim homophobia‘ has not only negative impacts on migrants but especially on muslim as well as non-muslim queers of colour in the scene.
Saboura Naqshband and Ahmet Sitki Demir introduce the construct and the way anti-muslim racism is working through a scenic sample-reading consisting of poetry and scientific and historical texts: Queer-muslim positions will get introduced and racist phantasies going to be revealed. Together with our guests we want to work out how we can mess up the fears of an allegedly islamization of the occident.

WoMANtís RANDom and SchwarzRund are going to share two from various different Black perspectives across different ways of art.
SchwarzRund is blogging, poeticizing, performing and writing in different shapes about her view on a strongly hetero-, cis- and white coined country and about her positions and privileges in this society. She has cis-privileges, is Black, queer, fat and neurodivers. A recurring topic of her work: How does it feel to be in a community if someone is experiencing more than just one or two forms of opression? How are racism, sexism and ableism etc. working together?
During the event she is going to weave categories together on stage and show which ways of artistic expression are her way to describe ditches.

Film Screening about Marsha P. Johnson

10.12. 7pm RosaLinde (not accessible for wheelchairs)
Lange Straße 11, 04103 Leipzig

Shown will be a documentary about the life and activism of Marsha ‚Pay It No Mind‘ Johnson: revolutionary Trans*Of Colour activist, Drag Queen and Stonewall resistance fighter. In 1969 the Christopher Street was a well known area of the LGBTQI movement in New York. Queer and Trans*People were regularly targeted and arrested by the police. In the night of the 27th to the 28th June 1969 riots started during a police raid in front of the Stonewall Inn. Those riots entered history as the Stonewall-Riots. At those riots, it were Queer- and Trans*People of Colour who started to resist the police violence and with that, they entered a new point in the LGBTQI movement. Especially with the view on todays Christopher Street Days and its appropriation through a predominantly White-, Cis-, middleclass Gay- and Lesbian movement it is important for us to show this movie which is remembering Marsha P. Johnson and other Queer- and Trans* of Colour fighters.
