Hi everyone, I’m Luisa! I’m an Event Manager for LU Pride and I’m doing a Master in International Relations.
I come from Milan (Italy) and while I was studying for a Bachelor in Social & Political Sciences, I’ve been the head of the LGBT association of my university.
Being biracial was always a struggle to find my own identity. In addition to this, I slowly realized my homosexuality, a fact which was not that easy to deal with, in an unaccepting country such as Italy. Thanks to LGBTQ+ activism I understood that our queerness, despite the threat of discrimination, is our source of strength.
As a member of LU Pride, I would like to keep helping our community in staying authentic and creating freedom.
