In our continuing Undocumented & LGBTQ series, the LMC speaks with Kenyon Farrow about the long history of using AIDS/HIV to prevent LGBTQ migrants from entering the US, going back to the Reagan administration at the dawn of the AIDS epidemic. Kenyon Farrow is the senior editor for The Body and The Body Pro.
The tragic shooting that took place in El Paso Texas this month was not an isolated incident. It is a tragedy that recalls the racism, xenophobia, and paranoia more than a century ago. On this episode, the LMC speaks with David Dorado Romo about the legacy of the 1917 Bath Riots and how it lends itself to help us understand the racism and xenophobia we see in today’s political landscape. David Dorado Romo is the author of, “Ringside Seat To A Revolution: An Underground Cultural History of El Paso And Juarez.”
The LMC continues its Undocumented and LGBTQ series by speaking with freelance journalist and news production fellow for Democracy Now, Maria Ines Taracena about the marginalized group within the marginalized group. The caravan within the caravan.
