The undocumented LGBTQ community is a marginalized group within a marginalized group. Freelance writer Giuliani Alvarenga speaks with the LMC about both the latest on the migrant caravan story and how the LGBQT community continues its struggle for their rights, both in the US and in Central America.
The LMC revisits the story of the struggle for independence in Western Sahara, one of only 2 regions in Africa where Spanish is spoken. We speak with Sahra Libre (alias) about the continued fight against Moroccan occupation, which has lasted for over 43 years. Sahra Libre is a Sahrawi refugee and activist living in the US. She conducted this interview in an undisclosed location in Morocco in order to circumvent the media blockade.
On this episode, the LMC shines the spotlight on the struggle for gender equality in Argentina women’s futbol. Despite a lack of support, institutional sexism, and hazardous training conditions, Argentina’s women’s national team are still close to reaching next year’s Women’s World Cup. So we speak with Gabriela Garton, goalkeeper for Argentina’s national team, and Nemesia Hijo, assistant professor of Social Anthropology @ the University of Buenos Aires.
