Queer East @ Plexal
Queer East @ Plexal is a meetup for the LGBTQ+ community at Plexal, Here East and our surrounding neighbourhood in London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Allies are welcome and encouraged.
This in-person event takes place every two months and both members and supporters of the LGBTQ+ community are welcome.
4 August: Amelia Abraham
We’ll be joined by Amelia Abraham, journalist and author of Queer Intentions: A (Personal) Journey Through LGBTQ + Culture.
Amelia, who came out as bisexual aged 18 (and later gay), was spurred on by a breakup to spend a year travelling around the world to speak to queer people about their lives.
We’ll speak to her about what she learned on her travels and we’ll dig into everything from identity politics and allyship to how workspaces can be genuinely supportive.
