Sexual Orientation, Gender identity, and Race in Nova Scotia

by Hillary Bain Lindsay


A panel and discussion recorded at Dalhousie University on November 30.

For more on this event, go here.

BlackOUT! brings together LGBTQ African Nova Scotians with Dr. Clemon George, an HIV/AIDS activist and educator, to discuss how heterosexism and racism affect LGBTQ people of African heritage.

BlackOUT! explores the proposition: “In order to offset the impact of HIV in the Canadian African Diaspora communities, we need to address homo/transphobia in those communities, as well as the lingering effects of racism in the LGBT community.” 

Introductions and moderation by Halifax lawyer Catherine Meade.
