Queer Refugees? Telling the stories of LGBTQ Migrants @ Goldsmiths Students' Union

This event is focused around listening to and supporting queer refugees who try to forge a place for themselves in European countries, one of the most urgent issues in LGBTQ politics and research today.
The evening will begin with a performance produced by Iceandfire, a charity who explore human rights through performance:
This is Who I Am is a verbatim performance of queer refugee narratives that offer an insight into the challenges and experiences shaping the lives of LGBTQ migrants.
Following the performance we host a panel discussion to further discuss these experiences with people engaged in work with and for LGBTQ migrants. The panel will include speakers from Lesbians and Gays Support the Migrants, African Rainbow Family and Dr. Maryna Shevtsova.
Free refreshments provided, all welcome.
