InterTech Ireland will present NO FATS // NO FEMMES, with representatives from Facebook, LinkedIn, Zalando, Google and Airbnb. Co-founded on Summer 2014. Co-chaired by Danielle De-Sousa (Linkedin) & Sivan Kaniel (Airbnb).
Taking place at Google Ireland on November 10th, and featuring:
Substance Abuse Lead and Wellbeing Programme Curator @ 56 Dean Street; featured on VICE Magazine’s Chemsex
Global Events & Community Manager – HER Social App
Riyadh Khalaf of YouTube
Producer, Presenter, Content Creator – YouTube, TV, Radio, Live
InterTech Ireland is proud to bring No Fats // No Femmes to Google Ireland, the second such panel discussion hosted by the organization event on the topic of LGBT equality and discrimination.
No Fats // No Femmes is a panel discussion connecting various stakeholders: from the frontline of gay men’s mental health and substance abuse; from an online dating app that connects lesbians looking for romance and fun; and from the world of arts and entertainment.
No fats no femmes is not just a common call-out to describe undesired partners who need not apply – it’s a mantra. Are these just individual sexual preferences, or do they represent racism, body shaming and homophobia that’s prevalent and unaddressed in our community?
Is marriage equality the end of the road that started with Stonewall? Are we now a nation of equals? Or are we liable to perpetuate amongst ourselves the discrimination we have suffered for decades?
