The Radical Queer Semaine 2013
It is time to create this autonomous queer space where you can dance the “flamingo”, express your punk radical side, feel comfortable, or clingy and sentimental, and where your ideas fly like a butterfly…
This space which strives to create a solid, bonded community through debating, through partying, through discussion, through the sharing of knowledge of body and mind, through questioning the limits and the stakes of the notion of identity- but also through the question “what is queer to begin with?”, its inclusivity and its accessibility.
This politicizing and politicized space- through it’s organization by a collective, through it’s events which nourish our reflections, our ways of life, our choices, and our dreams.
This space which hopes to create a safer space for the community, where you can leave your day to day baggage at the door to live something else, in a context looking to reduce the uneasiness, the insecurity or discomfort of each person. It is time for this respectful, welcoming, generous, and friendly place, which invites you no matter who you are to talk about what intrigues you, and to live our diversity. This space which tries to limit financial, physical, mental, and emotional barriers.
It is time to create this queer space in solidarity with LGBTTQIA people, sex workers, migrants, People Of Colour, and people living with HIV, which is against all forms of discrimination and exploitation, defined as anti-racist, anti-capitalist, feminist, and anti-colonialist.
Let’s do it! No fear! It is time… for the Radical Queer Semaine!
