11:00-12:30: Material realities

Breaking into regional groups to prepare a regional introduction that synthesizes the contributions of members on the state of sexual politics in each region. We are asked to present more than a report, but an analysis of the forces in action and the contradictions at play departing from our material realities (precariousness, violence, health including mental health, care, etc....and what to do about it). In particular some context will be needed:

1- Brief history of movements: how did we get to where we are now. Also address the question of various terminologies used and how they have changed and trends in self-identification

2- State of organizing – how are the different players? What are their platforms? What are the dynamics? What are the major political issues and tensions – including inbetween groups and organizations active on LGBTIQ politics and/or feminist politics?

3- Any advances on legal, political, medical fronts, and any backlashes and setbacks – an assessment of tactics and the long-term strategy

4- Early suggestions for any changes that need to happen at the level of international organizing and/or the 2003 FI resolution
