Description

“ARRIVAL: QUEERING THE REFUGEE EXPERIENCE”

GUEST SPEAKER: DANNY RAMADAN - Novelist, public speaker, columnist, and gay refugee activist.

The talk will include a bit of Danny's personal story, his arrival here in Canada, the work that he does, and the book he wrote: The Clothesline Swing. Danny will then focus on the many challenges facing queer and trans refugees who come to Canada, dismantling the myth that upon arrival all their problems are behind them.

VIU Nanaimo Campus - Arts & Sciences Building 355 Room 203

This event is a part of VIU's Global Citizens Week. Organised in collaboration with VIU Positive Space Alliance. Free admission. Copies of Danny's book will be available for sale and signing.
