DBA Queers Community Building
Sat Jun 22, 4:00 PM
Care, resting, and community building are essential for the well-being of Dalit, Bahujan, and Adivasi (DBA) queers, who navigate the intersecting oppressions of casteism and heteronormativity. Self-care and rest are acts of resistance for DBA queers, offering necessary reprieves from the systemic discrimination they face. Creating spaces that prioritize their mental and physical health helps in fostering resilience and empowerment. Community building among DBA queers is equally crucial, as it provides a supportive network where individuals can share experiences, celebrate cultural heritage, and find solidarity. Through collective care practices and mutual support, DBA queer communities can strengthen their identities, challenge oppressive structures, and advocate for social justice. These efforts not only enhance individual well-being but also build a more inclusive and affirming community, where DBA queers can thrive and lead transformative change. We will read and discuss material on care, resting and community-building.
