Creating a Dialogue and Building a Story

BY RAJ BALI
@ VOL 28 ON JUN 01, 2017

"It's a placement of onesself outside the norm and the mainstream. It's an identity that's perfect for society critique. 'Queer' is not a bad word. It's an owned word—a negative word that's been given a positive connotation by our community."

Raj Bali has spent the last year working to build a space for marginalized people to share their experience, create a dialogue and learn from one another. His experience informed this talk on queer representation and why it's essential to give more of the spotlight to marginalized voices.
