Uniting to Resist Attacks on Our Land & Identities:
Building on the Queer Indigenous Movement in the Americas

Sunday, October 29 | 2 - 3 p.m.
Alumni Memorial Union, Room 157

Join us for a workshop with Gaspar Sánchez on how LGBTQ awareness and Indigenous rights are vital for land defense, anti-militarism, and dismantling patriarchy. Learn what you can do in solidarity with repressed voices in Honduras and more about the Berta Cáceres Human Rights in Honduras Act.

In 2003, Gaspar Sánchez dropped out of the fifth grade and became a full-time member of COPINH (Civic Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras), the first Indigenous organization in Latin America to establish LGBTQ issues as a pillar of its work. Sánchez now serves as the Sexual Diversity & Rights Equality Coordinator, leading community trainings on Indigenous rights, territorial defense, and environmental protection. He has represented COPINH around the world from Mexico, Cuba, Venezuela, and Brazil, to the US and UN.
