Workshop Session 2-C
Presented by Jorge Solorio, Vice President, Las Vegas PRIDE
Sometimes we don’t notice privileges because they’re so ingrained in our culture. We are confronted on a daily basis with cultural and social norms. We are also confronted with marginalized communities and perspectives that deserve to have a voice. Understanding and acknowledging privileges is key to understanding why and how we react and perceive our surroundings. In order to objectively reflect on our interactions, we need to focus on the intersectionality of privilege. It is an essential framing that can help us understand how every privilege or marginalization exists in a different but related place.
