Queer Conversations – Surrey Muse

Queer Conversations is an initiative to create safe spaces for members of the LGBTQ+ communities world-wide to discuss various issues pertaining to life, and to share how situations and experiences may be different, and similar. At this time, this series is presented as part of Surrey Muse virtual gatherings but there is a strong possibility for it to come on its own as a vlog/blog and/or a virtual/IRL event. This first instalment is a 20-minute video titled ‘Queer Conversations (1) – Pakistan’ that was recorded in 2019 in Lahore by the Queer Feminist Documentary Collective, an online group created ‘to document queer participation in the Aurat (woman) March and look at young old queer mentorship’ and ‘how young queer folks are experiencing being queer and how they are relating to older queers.’ The discussion was organized and led by Sarah Suhail, a queer feminist and one of Pakistan’s Women Heroes for being a courageous activist to have nurtured her communities over years. Thank you, Sarah.
