Lahore, April 06, 2021 (PPI-OT): Saida Waheed Gender Initiative (SWGI) at LUMS brings you “Moving Through this ‘Portal’”, a web scroll showcasing seven student projects about the experiences of women, queer folks, and trans persons amidst the pandemic.

The projects include both academic research and artistic work that look at the pandemic beyond the framework of crisis, and offer new analytic perspectives and experiential insights.
