InterPride - Racism & Oppression Awareness ProgramAs Pride organizers, racism and oppression is an issue we have to deal with regularly. The question is, how do we identify this, and what are the potential solutions?
Additionally, many may still be unclear about what constitutes racism, unconscious bias, prejudice, micro-aggression, oppression, colorism, colonialism, and how these are all interconnected. The ability to understand and learn about these will help us become inclusive leaders while creating a safer space for Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) communities.
Racial justice issues are fundamental to InterPride, and we have been working very hard to ensure we are communicating this as a priority.
With this in mind, we are launched our first ever Racism & Oppression Awareness Program (ROAP) in November 2020.

In this video we discuss the BLM movement in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd, and countless other black lives having been taken by the police.
We need to do better, also in the LGBT community we still have a lot of work to do on racism and discrimination. It's not enough not to be a racist, we need to actively be anti-racist, and we admit that yes, we should have talked about this a long time ago already.
We are no experts and we don't mean to take anyone's voice nor lecture anyone, but we need to acknowledge what is happening and, having this platform, we have a degree of responsibility. Even if we can get just one more person to donate or be encouraged to do more reading or discuss with others or go out and protest, that's better than nothing.
