What is Intersectionality, Anyway? An Ethnic Aisle event

Hey everybody!

This year, the Ethnic Aisle became a sustainable publication, one that pays its writers, artists, editors and contributors. That’s all thanks to you, our generous donors, supporters and friends, the people who believe in bringing in fresh voices to the conversation about race, ethnicity and identity in the Greater Toronto Area. Without your ongoing support and commitment we wouldn’t exist today.

At this Ethnic Aisle event, our editor-in-chief Denise Balkissoon and some on-point panellists will be discussing “intersectionality:” a buzzy word that may or may not be actually useful. We’ll also have some readings from our terrific contributors, as well as food, drinks and fun. This will also be a chance for our donors to pick up their long-awaited incentives.

We really, really hope to see you there. 

Who: Comedian Aisha Alfa, musician Tanika Charles, organizer Lali Mohamed, and techie Saadia Muzaffar. 

When: Thursday, November 12, 2015. Private reception for donors at 6:15 p.m. General admission at 7:00 p.m.
