I am offering a seminar this semester as part of our seminars and workshops on: Majority? Minority? Diversity! A Question of Perspective (de)
Hi, I’m Markus. I was born in Lübeck, and have been living in Hamburg for 10 years. I have a master’s degree in social work and social pedagogy, and have been a youth worker at the Magnus Hirschfeld Centrum, a center for queer people in Hamburg for 7 years. We focus particularly on diversity-sensitive anti-discrimination work, as well as youth empowerment. I have also been working in the Queeren Vernetzung (queer network) for 3 years. That is a project in which my colleague and I offer training on the subject of gender and sexual diversity. Our key task lies in raising awareness for gender and sexual diversity, and applying this to everyday situations that participants might experience in connection with other diversity considerations, such as ethnic origin, disabilities, and religion. At PIASTA I will be offering the workshop Majority? Minority? Diversity! A Question of Perspective.
