Belgian Pride 2019 elects #AllForOne and intersectionality as theme

In 2018, the Belgian Pride in Brussels had as theme #YourLocal Power and the 2018 municipal elections in Belgium. 2019 is also an election year, but the slogan is #AllForOne and the the theme is intersectionality.

What is intersectionality? “Intersectionality is represented as an analytic framework that attempts to identify how interlocking systems of power impact those who are most marginalized in society. Intersectionality postulates that various forms of social stratification, such as class, race, sexual orientation, age, religion, creed, disability and gender, do not exist separately from each other but are interwoven together. While the theory began as an exploration of the oppression of women of color within society, today the analysis is potentially applied to all social categories (including social identities usually seen as dominant when considered independently)”, says Wikipedia.

In the context of LGBT pride, it means homophobia, racism, sexism and other forms of discriminations are interlocked.
