Radical Sunday School: Kill the nuclear family in your head

Sunday 16 June 2024, Radical Sunday School: Kill the nuclear family in your head. From 17:30 till 20:00.

How does our society push us to pursue romantic relationships whether we want them or not? The idea of the nuclear family (two heterosexual parents and a handful of their biological children) doesn’t just dominate mainstream cis het society, but finds its way into the minds of the queer community. How can we get away from this brainwashing and value all of our important relationships (especially the ones outside the romantic spectrum)?

The formal education system affects us all. Not only are we forced to attend schools growing up, but academic research shapes our governments, our news, and how we view the world around us. As much as many of us want to believe in the promise of institutional education, the sad fact is that our schools and universities are undemocratic and elitist. They perpetuate inequalities instead of giving people the tools to fight them. This world is fucked.

Here at Radical Sunday School, though, we know that another world is possible. Everyone should be able to direct their own learning, to grow together with their communities, and to live as though they’re already free. There are countless examples of movements already putting these ideas into practice. This collective is trying to follow in their footsteps, organizing to explore new ways of learning based on principles of autonomy, mutual aid, and egalitarianism.

This is not intended to be a course that you would have to follow all the way through. Jump in and out whenever you like. Sessions will be held every Sunday at Joe’s Garage. Doors open at 17.30, we start sharp at 18.00!
