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.
On our first ever episode on Trinidad & Tobago, the LMC speaks with Andre Bagoo about a landmark victory for the local LGBTQ community on striking down colonial-era anti-gay laws. Andre Bagoo is a Trinidadian poet and journalist. He will also discuss the significance of T&T’s first ever pride parade after the court ruling.
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.
