QUEER RESISTANCE explores the multiplicities of our identities encircled in deeply interconnected social and political struggles through honouring our revolutionary roots of LGBTQI liberation movements in Aotearoa and around the world.
The queer liberation movement was born out of resistance against police brutality, harassment, discriminatory laws, and a myriad of other forms of targeted injustices faced predominantly by working class people of colour sexuality and gender minorities.
In celebrating the collective struggle for queer and trans* liberation, QUEER RESISTANCE seeks to intentionally re-energise dialogues in our communities to encompass all representations of genders and sexualities in decolonial, anti-capitalist, intersectional and intergenerational frameworks.
