fyqueerlatinxs: Hola. Favor de compartir esto, que es muy importante: La lucha no termina, ahora le toca a la Cámara de Representantes. Esta semana, se llevará a votación no tan sólo el Proyecto 238, sino que también llevará ante su consideración el Proyecto de la Cámara 488 que añadiría la orientación…
Sometimes I wonder why I went to an expensive as fuck, small private liberal arts college, to study Latin American and Caribbean Studies. When I could have stayed in the city and study a more comprehensive/ critical latin@ course-load. Rather than taking random (but great well taught and thought out) history courses and latin@ cultural courses (film and literature some in Spanish and...

At the Hampshire College commencement. This is too real. Amy Goodman talking about genocide and military regimes and the role of grassroots journalism. People proclaiming their communist tendencies. Queer people expressively addressed. People of color expressively addressed. Addressing state and corporate terrorism. I’ve never heard of a commencement as critical as this one. Makes me feel...
jensenacklessauce: Shout out to the folks who fight against homophobia and transphobia every day, in small ways, through individual acts, by speaking up or showing up. Shout out to the qtpoc whose existence /is/ that fight. Shout out to the people, not the corporations.
gelopanda: latinagabi: I swear sometimes watching latin tv is actually worse than watching US tv, it’s actually whiter. Everyone who ‘matters’ is white as yogurt, meanwhile indigenous and black latin@s are (if they’re lucky) the help, even though together we make more than half the population… but ya, I wanna hear more about how white latin@s feel so excluded… Latin America keep on holding...

Pro tip to white women trying to claim voguing: DON’T. It ain’t yours. You could however join the party, join a house, even become a legend. But it wasn’t created for you. Don’t forget that QPOC created the ballroom scene because they needed it. It’s an act of defense, survival and resistance to the racist, homophobic and transphobic systems that we have to live through. Don’t take...
bijunn: witchsistah: bijunn: I’m dying. Straight women think they own a claim to voguing because they’ve “been in the scene.” This chick straight up said “I’m half White and it was inspired by White people so it’s not just for QPOC” UGLIEST LAUGHTER. Chile, whut? lmao this shit right here

Making a parody video of Washington Heights for my school’s latin@ show. I brought up that some might find it problematic because its very stereotypical… But then I was like Fuck that. We’re parodying it BECAUSE it’s stereotypical. And I’m here for that. Giving Latin@s (in this case Dominicans) agency to parody the stereotype, knowing that this is not how...

peroquevaina: Made the mistake of reading Jezebel today and saw someone comment “Saudi Arabia has beheaded 38 people this year” in an article about Islam and sex. Like…. do these idiots not realize how many people we kill in this country with the death penalty? And how many people we imprison for no legitimate reason at all? And how this disproportionately affects WOC? If your feminism is not...
