Though historically sidelined, queer joy and power have taken many forms throughout time in education. Love, joy, and community support have been proven tools of resistance, as well as power for reimagining the present and future of education. Honoring that approach of resistance and moving from the framework of resilience, grit, and perseverance, our panel will be a conversation between various students, researchers, and practitioners, centered on queer joy and power. All are welcome. Join us for this interactive panel exploring how queer joy and power can be amplified throughout education.
