The topic for our presentation focused on the Queer community and the issues currently affecting them. We define the queer community inclusively as those who do not fit neatly within the realm of cisgender identity and heterosexual attraction. This includes, but is not limited to the LGBT identities, asexuals and aromantic people, non-binary people who may or may not have gender dysphoria or identify as transgender, non-monogamous people, intersex people, those questioning their identity and anyone else who feels comfortable identifying as queer. We strove to get different perspectives from an international standpoint from different community members, interviewing them, listening to their personal experiences and asked them their perspectives on what issues were most relevant to them and the broader community.
