LUPride at the Diversity Symposium 2017

On November 22, 2017, LU Pride participated in the Leiden University Diversity Symposium on How inclusion makes diversity work. Besides introducing out fellow students to the work we do at our stand, we also held a workshop titled The Pink Elephant in the Room, during which our board members Irma, Araba (Molly), and Tiaan discussed the issue of discrimination within the LGBTQ+ community, namely representation, racism, and fat-shaming.

We are very glad that we were able to provide a platform for meaningful, impactful discussions that left everyone “just a little uncomfortable,” as Molly put it – discomfort, in this case, is a sign of self-awareness and openness to exploring and modifying one’s biases.
