- Heteronormative Hegemony by demystifying and decolonizing
- Isolating ‘isms’ to better dismantle patriarchy, power and privilege
- Nipping Neutrality towards intentional, inherent interests of the oppressed
Development and civil society prescribe focus on the outcomes; we understand and live in the process. Recognising that in order to work ourselves out of relevance, need and interest of LGBTIQ+ youth, we must do the neglected and overseen work of transforming lives. The work that allows for our community to articulate what they believe in as success. It is in the detail, the experience and the process of activism, organizing and impact work. Outcomes are a social construct of colonialist neoliberal saviours. Do not be mistaken, we can produce as many M&E logframes and theories of change as you want to advance our work; just know it is not that important in the face of systemic violence, discrimination, hate speech and harm. The law and public health have only gone so far to let us be; our work is centered on belonging and becoming in spite of the many influences and invisible nuances against us – even within safe spaces.
