So, you’re dating a white person/ people. How do you manage the racism that may happen between you while also maintaining the care in your relationship? How is this even more complicated as a queer/trans/2S person? How do you manage possible feelings of guilt, anger and lack of connection? What do you do when your QTBIPOC* pals are judgmental that you’re dating a white person/ people? How do you handle your partner(s)’ racist family and friends? This facilitated discussion is a place to hash out the feels about dating white people—the good, the bad and the ugly. The discussion will be participant-led, so please bring your feelings and your thoughts.
