To Be Brown and Gay in the USA

3:30 - 5:00 PM

Join us for an in-person showing of the pre-recorded SpeakOut Ed Talk by scholar and author, Dr. Anthony Ocampo.  Immigration, race, and LGBTQ+ rights have been headline issues, yet the experiences of those whose identities include all three are often invisible. Dr. Ocampo discusses the struggles of LGBTQ+ people of color to be seen, not just by the public, but also by their immigrant families, ethnic communities, and the mainstream gay community.

Dr. Ocampo zeros in on Latinx and Asian gay men and looks at how schools in particular are racialized, gendered, and heteronormative and the implications intersectional identities hold for understanding educational inequalities. A discussion immediately following the video, facilitated by Lajmar Anderson, Archives & Reference Librarian, Sinclair College.
