We all live and were born in a nation state. The passports that we have (or don’t have) limit or grant us our freedom to move. Even if we are ideologically against nation states and borders, they are still realities in our lives. People often connect stereotypes with countries they don’t know personally. At TQU we want to challenge these stereotypes and show different artists, activists, events etc. that are all part of the global queer community, and much more diverse than people might expect!
