Reflecting on Homonationalism
he / they
A common narrative in Western society currently is: "Foreigners are the main driving force behind queerphobia – Muslims, people in the South or East." More queers in the West vote for right-wing parties, Germans light up a football stadium in rainbows when playing against Hungary and more queers want to serve in the military. In this discussion-based workshop, we will talk about what homonationalism is, how we feel about it and how we can get active against it.
