This online event will especially focus on the limitations and challenges of the concept of ‘visibility’.

A double-edged sword, visibility can have contrasting impacts on the lives of our communities worldwide. What does ‘visibility’ mean in the context of the many social, economic, public health, and security challenges of the times we live in? How can we collectively work to think beyond concepts such as ‘visibility’, and focus on the broader, and more holistic goal of trans liberation? Addressing these queries and more, this event is intended at building a critical dialogue on ‘visibility’ and its implications for our communities.
