6 to 8 PM
UQAM – room DS1950 Pavillon J.-A.-DeSève
Why collect testimonials from people who identify as gay, lesbian or bisexual in 2015? What are the challenges that arise from such a project? And what do readers think of these public “models”?
The conference addressed the process of making this collection of testimonials and the impact the book has had so far, on those who tells their stories, publics who listen to them and on the fight to eliminate prejudice and homophobia more generally.
This event was open to the public and took place in French.
Books were be available for purchase at the event for the fixed price of 25$ (cash only) and are available at the Jasmin COOP UQAM bookstore (room J-M205, metro level, Pavillon Judith-Jasmin, UQAM).
