    BLM AT SCHOOL - January *Queer Affirming
    Posted on 01/09/2021
    Queer Affirming

    Principle: Queer Affirming During January, we find it critical to lift up Bayard Rustin, one of the principal organizers behind the March on Washington which is crowned as one of MLK’s lasting achievements.

    To be queer-affirming means lifting up our queer ancestors who were at the foundation of our movements throughout time.
    This deepens the purpose of MLK day to understand that no one person makes a movement, highlighting how MLK’s legacy encompasses the contributions of many. 

    What is meant by the term "Queer Affirming"?
    When we gather as community, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).
