This discussion evening will be all about homosexuality and gay rights in the Middle-East and the role of “the West” when it comes to gay emancipation in this area. During this evening the central question will be: 'Can gay emancipation in the Middle-East only be achieved when it originates from a change in Middle-Eastern culture itself, or is Western interference necessary to make this change?'.
Speakers: - Iman Al-Ghafari: a Syrian woman who had to escape her country because of her sexual orientation - Neil van der Linden: expert on the Middle-East - Stichting Secret Garden (http://www.stichtingsecretgarden.nl/) - Other speakers to be announced later
There will be enough room for questions and discussion during and afterwards the lecture so please join us, invite all your friends and let us know what you think!
