Refugees who are LGBT*I*Q are often subject to discrimination on numerous levels, especially in the process of flight and migration. These experiences are often oscilliate between being silenced & neglected and being misused & instrumentalised.
What are the different perspectives on this issue in the context of refugee activism in Berlin and Germany? What is necessary to make these perspectives become more visible in the dominant discourse on refugee issues and what are the expectations and demands of those affected concerning self-organisation, networking and support structures? These will be some of the points we will be focusing on this evening with our guests:
Safa Mohamed (Feminist and LGBT*I*Q Activist), Ahmed Awadalla (Refugee Activist) and Bino Byansi Byakuleka (Textile designer and Refugee Activist)
The evening will be chaired by Joy Zalzala Soyka (Lesbenberatung Berlin/LesMigraS) and will be conducted in English and Arabic with German translation.

Corasol event – Discussion about media presentation of so called “refugee crisis”
“Migration” – the things media won’t tell you. Exactly because in the media there’s nothing but talk about “migrants flooding in” we want to tell you the story from our point of view.
Each day there are dozens of media reports on refugees and we are being described in terms of ‘flood waves’ and other natural desasters. This evening we want to share with you our perspective on leaving one’s place and going somewhere else. tue 27th October at Friedelstr. 54 (close to U8 and U9, Hermannplatz). Food at whatever you can pay price will be ready at 8PM, discussion will start at 9PM sharp.
