Event description

Description

Welcome to the Queer Asian Youth (QAY) Un-Conference! This un-conference was generously supported by the Community One Foundation, the Canadian Nursing Students' Association, and our lovely queer Asian youth community through the community fundraiser :)

Our theme for this conference is “Defining Ourselves for Ourselves.” Through this conference, we want to cultivate a space that allows us to flesh out our identities as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, queer, questioning, asexual, and two-spirit, as East and Southeast Asians, and as youth. We want to have conversations around power and privilege and how we relate to them in our interactions with folks within and outside of our communities.

We will start off with an intergenerational panel involving LGBTQ-identified youth and elder panellists, then delve into workshops on anti-oppression, healthy relationships, spirituality, drag and self-expression, harm reduction, allyship and more.

Have an idea for a workshop? We're also looking for community facilitators! Fill out this Google form if you're interested. We will provide you with training and support to flesh out your idea. Transportation and material costs will be reimbursed.

Have zines/cool art stuff you've created? We will have a zine table at the event!

Interested in volunteering? Commuting outside of Toronto? Need ASL interpretation? Please contact Sarah Quinto at qayconference@gmail.com.

Tokens and hot lunch will be provided.

The un-conference will be taking place on a wheelchair accessible space. It will be in various rooms on the 4th floor of the Podium building at Ryerson University - elevators are available. Washrooms are gender neutral.

Stay tuned on the Facebook event for updates as the event date draws closer! Spots are limited - sign up early!
