NAMES & Neighbors of UC Riverside presents the Tabla Conference on Saturday, January 18, 2014.
Our purpose is to build coalitions between Queer and Trans* students and allies who have ties to South Asia, the Middle East, North Africa and neighboring countries. At the conference, we intend to *assemble more collaboration with youth and youth organizers, *elevate knowledge about our homelands and respond to U.S. foreign policies in those regions, *unpack queerness, trans identity, and homosexuality in the family, *redefine national identity, gender expressions, masculinity and femininity, *deepen and recognize the complexities within these women's, men's, transgender spaces, and queer spaces, *heal oppression through artistic expression, and provide education and knowledge through film screenings, lectures, and workshops.
