Oberlin, Ohio

Working Our Way Home is a 4-day conference focused on the lives, needs and struggles of people--primarily students in northeastern Ohio-- in the African Diaspora who would welcome a conversation of their sexualities and genders that are more complex than mainstream categories. While recognizing language limitations and the difficulties of defining identity, we will explore
(1) how our racial and ethnic identities relate to our sexuality and gender,
(2) how we self-identify and exist between and outside conventional/traditional labels, and
(3) how we form homes - supportive communities and families.
