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.
Something is missing from the migrant crisis that is separating families: MONEY. There is a lot of money to be made off the misery of immigrants in the US. So the LMC speaks with Karina Moreno about the lucrative, billion-dollar deportation industry and how the profit motive undermines democracy & human rights. Karina Moreno is an assistant professor in the school of business, public administration, and information sciences at Long Island University in Brooklyn.
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.
