Day 28 – Are Latinos Queer?
This question is timely as it falls on National Coming Out Day. Of course there are queer communities in our societies and all over the world. They existed long before the US was formed, long before borders were constructed, exploration and conquest. They have always existed and this is what I believe.
We have always existed. We are not some “new” manifestation.
What may be new is the language we use to speak about our experiences. Or the ways in which we choose to engage with one another, share our victories, and celebrate our culture or create media. The oppression we experience is not new either. Much at the hands of our own community members.
