MENA-seminar: Arabs for sexual diversity

There is a rich and vibrant history of sexual diversity in the Arab world. So why is it that transsexuals, lesbians, bisexuals and gays from all over the Arab world are often cast as western subversive agents by media and authorities in the region? How can LGBTQ people from the region reclaim their history and language in the struggle for acceptance? And how can LGBTQ-people from all over the region cooperate in creating a strong and powerful voice in the Arab world and for Arabic LGBTQ-people in the wider international community?

These are some of the questions that will be addressed at the MENA-seminar that will be held in connection with World Outgames in Copenhagen. Around 60 people from more than 13 countries will be represented at the seminar. The seminar is organized in cooperation between individuals and organizations from Denmark and the whole MENA region.

Date: July 23 - 25
