CONNECT, REFLECT, ACT, TRANSFORM
The European Lesbian* Conference promotes intersectionality in all exchanges, by promoting friendly non-violent communication, a non-hierarchical approaches and affirmative actions for those who do not have easy access to different types of resources. The organising process involves promoting the engagement of lesbians* with a diverse and interdisciplinary space open to all ethnic and religious backgrounds, lesbians* of colour, of different ages, and/or of various degrees of ability.
Our aim is to hold an inclusive European lesbian* conference. We insist on calling it a “lesbian” conference although we recognize that, as with any category or label, it may be contested and insufficient to describe the diversity of our communities. However, using the word “lesbian” is part of the political struggle for visibility, empowerment and representation.
