*We highly encourage applications from queer immigrants and newcomers who feel the burden of language when it comes to queerness and expression.
We are looking to connect, converse and share stories with LGBTQ2S+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Pansexual, Trans, Non-binary, Queer, Questioning and Two Spirit) community members whose native language is not English, who have learned it as an additional language.
With facilitation by Jen Sungshine, we will provide a safe space for community members to reflect on their lived experiences as multi-lingual queer people. How has language shaped who we are? How does English succeed or fail to express our feelings, our gender, or our sexuality? What barriers have we faced due to having English as an additional language?
