PANEL DISCUSSION
THINKERS & TROUBLEMAKERS


Join us for our Festival Focus Panel Discussion with deep thinkers, take-charge doers and long-time troublemakers. A roundtable discussion with queer women of color activists who have taught us what it means to stand at the intersections of gender, sexuality, race/ethnicity, nationality and culture. This panel illustrates the paths that have led to our current crossroads and illuminates our way forward through social justice feminism. Panels are Jewelle Gomez, Ericka Huggins, Pratibha Parmar, Canyon Sam, and Olga Talamante. [More info & Bios]
