Intersectionality in Everyday Life

Abstract

The inspiration for my project was to do a creative piece asking UBCO students the following questions: "How does intersectionality affect your life? Is this something that you actively think about in your day to day experience?" 

This project was aimed to complicate heteronormative ideas by bringing awareness to what privileges certain people have, and how others have overcome aspects of oppression. Bringing awareness to how we see ourselves and how we interact with others.
