While the boys have their fun at the World Cup in Russia, the LMC dedicates this episode to the secret history of Mexican Women’s futbol and the bright future it has ahead following the success of Liga MX femenil. We speak with Joshua Nadel, an associate professor in the department of History @ North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC. It is a story of perseverance in the face of sexism, homophobia, lack of support, and institutional discrimination.
What is it like to be undocumented & LGBTQ? Does the Latino LGBTQ immigrant community receive support from the rest of the mainstream American LGBTQ community? What is the Latino LGBTQ communities interpretation of Pride? The LMC tries to answer these questions when we spend the hour with Dagoberto Bailon and Crystal Zaragoza from Trans Queer Pueblo in Arizona.
One year after the Pulse nightclub massacre, the LMC speaks w/ Xorje Olivares about the erasure & lack of coverage of Queer Latino culture. Xorje Olivare is a radio personality on SiriusXM radio, a contributing writer for Vice, and the host of the webseries, “Hey Xorje.” Learn more @ heyxorje.com/
