At Erasure: The Otherization of Queerness, JusticeAid’s September 18th public forum in partnership with The Riverside Church of New York, speakers and panelists shared their voices and passion, their knowledge and experience, to raise awareness and educate us on the anti-LGBTQ culture and rhetoric that is permeating our country. Rev. Michael Livingston, senior minister at The Riverside Church, gave a stirring invocation.
“This afternoon is about us celebrating queer beauty. It’s about educating and uplifting. It’s about affirmation and advocacy—about nourishing and protecting beautiful young queer lives at risk in a toxic world of conformity, judgment, and erasure.”
