Allsorts Youth Project: Unboxing Our Identities
A resource for young people who are LGBT+ and PoC* and/or Allies.
Why do we need this resource? Historically, PoC and lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender (LGBT+) have often been erased from queer narratives, marginalised, and faced racism in LGBT and queer spaces, despite having often fought at the front of queer liberation movement.
Subsequent to lifetimes of systematic oppression, those of us with LGBT+ and BAME/PoC identities can often feel conflicted between different aspects of ourselves. It’s easy to internalise the devaluation that has been placed upon us by society, and see ourselves as less than we truly are.
"No pride for some of us without liberation for all of us."
- Marsha P Johnson
