The Intersection of it All
An examination of the different identities they take up as an individual that impacts their existence and activism. As a Fat Non Binary Bisexual South Asian born in Singapore, they share experiences of Fatphobia, Biphobia and of being a minority race. To drive home the fact that no one part of their identity can exist without the championing of the rest of them.
Having always been activist at heart but only getting into it in their mid 30s, they delve into the challenges of coming out later in life in the public eye and coming to a place of true self acceptance.
Date: Friday 18 June 2021
Time: 7 – 9p.m. Singapore time
Venue: Zoom link will be provided
