Lighthouse Learning Series: Queer History of Harm Reduction Pt. 2

Starting in October 2023 and running until February 2024, we will be covering a series of queer harm reduction topics with the goal of creating a more inclusive movement.

Priority is given to those living and working in New York due to program scope. However, the series will be held virtually and is open to all those who would like to build on their harm reduction knowledge to provide better services to LGB/TGNC+ folks!

Session description: Queer History in Harm Reduction Part 2 picks up where we left off from the last session. We will do a brief recap and then walk through history to look at how intersecting movements have led to harm reduction as we know it today. This session is a space to pay homage to the queer folks who paved the way for harm reduction as we know it and a call to action to continue radicalizing queer spaces and create a better world with the people we love.

Facilitators: Arlo Santiago Cruz (he/they) & Taylor Edelmann (he/him)
