[Must watch] A powerful conversation on Femme Erasure: Our Queer Undoing, with Dr Bev Ditsie, Mona Eltahawy and Jamil F Khan
Jacana Media hosted a Don’t Shut Up Conversation titled ‘Femme Erasure: Our Queer Undoing’ yesterday.
Watch the recording below.
Throughout history queer revolutions have been led by femmes and womn, yet rarely are their lives celebrated until history absolves them.
In a time of relentless global queer oppression, feminist giant and author Mona Eltahawy, filmmaker and queer activist Bev Ditsie and Jamil F Khan, critical diversity scholar and author of Khamr: The Makings of a Waterslams, discussed the erasure of femmes and womn from revolutionary movements they birthed and its implications for queer, feminist resistance against patriarchy.

This morning I wake up with my fierce sister warrior feminist giant @monaeltahawy's words: "I don't want to be equal to men who themselves are not free. I want to be free"
