Details of the Workshop

The workshop envisions a society where all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression, are embraced, celebrated, and afforded equal rights and opportunities. This workshop aims at understanding the participants for a world where LGBTQIA+ individuals can live authentically, free from discrimination and prejudice, and where their diverse voices are heard, valued, and respected.

The workshop is to create a transformative idea that empowers and amplifies the voices of the LGBTQIA+ community. Through interactive workshops and performances, facilitators aim to challenge societal norms, address systemic oppression, and foster empathy, understanding, and acceptance. We seek to provide a safe and inclusive space for personal growth, dialogue, and collective action, promoting social change and advocating for the rights and well-being of LGBTQAI+ individuals.
