International perspective on the life situation and rights of LGBTQ+ people - Iran and Russia.
Academ

This year, Academic Pride's seminar will have an international focus with the aim of raising the life situation of LGBTQ+ people in Iran and Russia. What rights do they have and what can the world's international solidarity and politics look like?

Participants are Shadi Amin, director of 6rang, Iranian Lesbian and Transgender Network, and Kirill Polkov from Södertörn University and doctoral student in gender studies.
Shadi Amin has researched gender discrimination, systematic oppression against women and the state of female homosexuals and transgender people in the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Kirill Polkov examines the role homosexuality plays in media and cultural representations of Russia in the Swedish context. The seminar will be held at Pride House and the conversation will be in English.

Academic Pride is a collaboration around Stockholm Pride between several of Stockholm's higher education institutions and associated student unions. The purpose is to make visible the importance of LGBTQIA + issues in higher education institutions, both in terms of research and teaching and in terms of inclusive work and study environments.
