We Do Not Live Single Issue Lives
Sat, Jan 6, 2024 from 1pm - 2:30pm
Gloria Jackson-Nefertiti is very much fascinated by the concept of "Intersectionality," which is why she became interested in teaching this class. Created by Kimberlé Crenshaw, who is an American lawyer and civil rights advocate, "Intersectionality" is what happens when "...multiple forms of discrimination (such as racism, sexism, and classism) combine, overlap, or intersect, ESPECIALLY IN THE EXPERIENCES OF MARGINALIZED INDIVIDUALS OR GROUPS" (from the Merriam-Webster Dictionary). **A Black trans woman is probably the best example of a marginalized person possessing multiple forms of discrimination and oppression that intersect.**
In "We Do Not Live Single Issue Lives," you'll start your journey of learning just how many social identities you may have, as well as how they intersect with each other. (SPOILER ALERT: The number of your overlapping identities is probably way more than you think!)

About the Educator:
Gloria Jackson-Nefertiti has long been interested in the idea of "Intersectionality." And when you consider her many intersections and multiple identities (Black, Autistic, Bisexual, Elder, Kinky, Breast Cancer Survivor, Polyamorous, etc.), this makes total sense! Gloria is a workshop presenter and panelist ("Transcending Shame" and "Polyamory 101"), as well as a frequent podcast guest. She is also hard at work on her memoir entitled, "A Different Drum: A Black, Autistic, Polyamorous, Mentally Ill, Former Fundamentalist Christian/Cult Member and Breast Cancer Survivor WHO JUST WANTS TO FIT IN."
