Navigating Our Intersections: A Conversation About Race, Ability, and Queerness With Lydia X. Z. Brown

In celebration of Asian Pacific Islander Heritage Month and in an effort to promote inclusive and intersectional dialogue about social justice, Lydia X. Z. Brown will deliver a lecture about their experiences as an autistic, trans-racial adoptee. Through their lecture, Brown will challenge us to speak about transracial and transnational adoption as a reproductive justice, disability justice, decolonization, and racial justice issue. They will also tackle how the fame of individuals emulating Rachel Dolezal and her blackface have affected their ability to navigate American society as a real transracial person.

SpeakerLydia X. Z. Brown, Disability Justice Advocate, Organizer, and Writer 

 

Co-sponsored by the Queer and Trans People of Color Coalition, The Gender Identity Federation, The Pride Network, Hofstra’s Asian American Pacific Islander Alliance, Collegiate Women of Color, Intercultural Engagement and Inclusion, and the Hofstra Cultural Center.
