/ba.ca/ with New Naratif: Fostering Queer Communities in Southeast Asia Event Recap

Welcome to Community Corner, a space for our members to catch up on events that they have missed, read team recommendations, and write to us! 

On  28 June 2023, our community joined us for a heartfelt discussion about fostering collective care for Southeast Asian LGBTQIA+ people, in commemoration of Pride Month. Together with Asmara S. Wigati and Shaleen Chrisanne, we shared what it’s like living as a queer person in Southeast Asia, the struggles that come with it, and our hopes of creating more inclusive spaces for queer people.

This online session was dedicated to the queer community, whom we know rely very much on collective care and found families to survive. With increasing threats and criminalisation, collective care is more needed than ever.
