Xenolearn

Your place to learn diversity,
equity and inclusion

Flipping xenophobia on it's head.

From fear of others to learning about and loving each other.

New Book Club!

Celebrate Pride and Read Queer Intentions with Us!

Join us around the world as we read Amelia’s journey around the Western world and the vastly different experiences and rights of the LGBTQIA+ communities. Join her as she cries at the first same-sex marriage in Britain, loses herself in the world’s biggest drag convention in L.A., marches at Pride parades across Europe, visits both a transgender model agency and the Anti-Violence Project in New York to understand the extremes of trans life today, parties in the clubs of Turkey’s underground LGBTQ+ scene, and meets a genderless family in progressive Stockholm.

 

How can we build an inclusive society in which everyone is valued and respected, no matter a person’s gender identity or sexual orientation? Together, we’ll read about LGBTQIA+ issues, discrimination, intersectionality, and the long road that must still be paved for many people to be themselves.

 

Every Book Club that we’ve organized at Xenolearn strives to both educate and empower. That’s why we will donate 50% of the proceeds to the LGBTQIA+ organization, Colored Qollective.

Xenolearn Postcards!

Support Xenolearn and buy a Postcard!

When Xenolearn began in April 2020, it was a two sided PDF with a simple mission: try to make the world safer for human differences. Today, eight months later, Xenolearn is a thriving virtual learning hub! We have hosted 3 Book Clubs, interviewed 10 experts, teachers and advocates for our podcast, curated over 1500 resources for students and teachers, and donated €500 to diversity and inclusion organizations! And this is just the beginning!


We have big plans for Xenolearn in 2021. But to show our appreciation to our committed and passionate community of Xenolearners, we are selling Xenolearn Thank You Postcards for €12!

What Is Xenolearn?

Xenolearn is a nonprofit company that seeks to make the world safer for human differences by creating, collecting and sharing resources that help us understand human differences, connect to each other’s universal human experiences, and respect each other’s right to be different.

We want to do our part to make the world safer for human differences by learning from others.

As a start-up, we  currently are working on three separate things:

a Book Club, a Podcast, and Education Resources for teachers.
