Dialogue Panel Presentation: Raising "They-by's": Discussions on Family Creation & Black Queer Conscious Parenting
Description: This panel will feature three Black queer parents who will discuss how they are constructing parenthood in ways that resist heteronormativity and cisnormativity, as well as how they are working to raise healthy, well-adjusted Black children in an environment that is often unsafe for children who look like ours or exist in families like ours. The panel will also answer questions pertaining to parenthood generally - and radical queer parenting specifically - and provide helpful resources to the audience.
Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: recognize nuances of family creation & parenting for Black queer families; illustrate and demonstrate knowledge of and use of queer, nonbinary and culturally respectful language when working with Black queer families as well as providers who service this population.
