Let's Talk, Politics over Paan

Politics N' Paan - Discussion on LGBTQ Employment 

They say never discuss politics with others. But we're queers so we're breaking all the rules anyway!

KhushDC announces the launch of our discussion series: Politics N' Paan! Every few months, we will arrange for a facilitated discussion on burning issues & global topics of Khushies' choosing. With (tobacco-less) paan and other delectables, of course :) 

How does being LGBTQ affect us in the workplace? What rights do we have to protect us against employment discrimination?

This Politics N' Paan will focus on employer discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. It will include a discussion of LGBTQ labor rights, including an explanation of Executive Order 13672 which was signed into law earlier this year, DC and national labor laws, and pending legislation. Khush member Parag Mehta will facilitate the discussion.  

Please come -- engage, discuss, teach and learn at Politics N' Paan! We look forward to seeing Khushiesand members of other LGBTQ communities. 
When: Sunday, January 18th, 2:00-4:00 PM
Where: Pansaari, 1603 17th Street Northwest, Washington, DC 20009
