The Women in the Life's IQ Project workshop was presented at Morgan State's Black Liberation: Life, Death, and Queer ResistanceConference this past weekend. Both the Conference and the IQ Project workshop went deep into the recesses of homophobia, racism, patriarchy and generational bias. The IQ Project featured Samantha Master, Aishah Shahidah Simmons, Kaya Gingras and a host of LGBT scholars/community advocates from Towson University, Howard University, and Morgan State University Women's and Gender Studies Program. The takeaways were priceless. This was the second such workshop and we hope to host many more. #bridgingthegenerationaldivide
