Intimate Partner Violence in the Queer Community

  • Murmur

Southern Fried Queer Pride presents our first Southern Fried Forum of the year - Intimate Partner Violence in the Queer Community.

Far too often, intimate partner violence amongst queer and trans folks goes unaddressed. Many are unaware of or afraid to reach out to resources and help. SFQP intends for this event to be an intentional space for those who have or are currently experiencing intimate partner violence, their supporters, and those interested. This event will be led by professionals and will supply attendees with resources and contact with local groups and organizations dedicated to this cause.

Doors will open at 6PM with refreshments. The event will begin at 6:30PM. The event will take place at Murmur (100 Broad Street SW ATL, GA 30303).

Parking can be found on surrounding streets, lots, and garages. MARTA is two blocks north of Murmur.

Racism in the Queer Community: An Open Forum Talk!

  • Murmur

What does safety for QTPoC in the community look like? What does the term "safe space" mean? What separates inclusion from tokenization? There are a lot of questions, and less answers, when it comes to existing as a person of color in the larger queer community.

Join us for Racism in the Queer Community, an open forum talk, on Thursday, Oct 13th at the Murmur from 6 PM to 9 PM. The discussion itself will start at 6:30 PM. This is a guided discussion, but the voices heard are yours. This event aims to let QTPoC define what is safe for them, what is/isn't racism, and what white queers can do to do better.

Refreshments will be served.

Parking can be found along MLK Jr Drive, Mitchell and South Broad Streets, and in closeby lots and garages. The Five Points MARTA Station is two blocks north.
