Black queer futures
We've always considered Stratagem to be a hub for those who are excited by social change which is why we wanted to continue the conversation.
Welcome to our first pop up event!
Stratagem: Black Queer Futures is a series of virtual talks and workshops by Black activists, thought-leaders and revolutionaries that dive deep into the nuance of Black queer identity, resistance and movement building.
Spread out over Black History Month, we invite you to explore the intersectional experience of Black LBGTQ2S+ lived realities and histories.
This is the space, open to everyone, to delve deeply into topics like identity, culture, resistance, healing, and allyship within a moving and honest context.
