What Does BIPOC Stand For?
BIPOC is an acronym for Black, Indigenous, and individuals from diverse ethnic backgrounds (pronounced as ‘bye-pock’). The purpose of this term is to emphasize the unique perspectives and challenges faced by Black and Indigenous communities, while also promoting unity among various racial and ethnic groups.
One of Munich’s oldest, and incredibly impactful groups, Beyond Color is a community group that brings together Black and POC LGBTQIA+ individuals with a background in racism, discrimination and migration.
Beyond Color organises workshops, talks and lectures, parties, performances, demonstrations and conventions in Europe. In fact, they have had over 60 events since 2017 and were even awarded a prize from the Bavarian government!
We’d recommend you check out their website for the full details, especially their events and event history is really something wonderful to see.
