Queer Talks Shades lII: Racism

QT 30Apr2017

To some extent, almost everyone has heard the phrase: “That’s racist.” But, what does racism look like? Is it an obvious and violent act or mostly accidental and uniformed?

Join QT in the last installment of a three part talk exploring intersections of race and identity.

Date: Sunday 30-April
Time: 5:30PM
Venue: Roxie
359 Kangding Rd 2F near North Shanxi Rd

Queer Talks Shades II: Colorism

QT 16Apr2017

How do you define beauty? Often, our beauty standards are shaped by social influences and history we are exposed to from a young age. Media and advertisements consistently bombard us with whitening products, telling us: “the whiter the better. And then there’s the moment when tanning products were not widely received by Chinese netizens. Should a boy decide to use cosmetics? If he does,is discrimination a guarantee? “BEAUTY” intersects skin tone, gender, class…everything that we assume is equivalent to aesthetic. Join us on April 16th, to talk about colorism and mainstream society’s (unattainable) standards of beauty in the queer community.

Date: Sunday April 16th
Time: 5:30PM
Venue: Roxie, 359 Kangding Rd 2F near North Shanxi Rd

After getting some day offs from our day job (yes, we are volunteers), we ping-ed our friends who are also volunteering/working for LGBTQ organizations there and also did some quick research on the local LGBTQ scene and development, then off we flew and escaped the cold chills of Shanghai’s never-ending winter.MORE…
