Between two stigmas: the intersection of being LGBTQ+ and an immigrant

Pride month celebrates who we are and the power of coming out. It’s also a time to acknowledge the risk associated with coming out for many LGBTQ+ people around the world and in our communities.  The panelists will share what it is like to be at the intersection of two stigmatized communities: being an immigrant, being undocumented, and being LGBTQ+. We will hear about how undocumented immigrants create and conceal parts of their identity to cope with discrimination and negative stereotypes. We will highlight pending legislation and how DA members can forward the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 and the American Dream and Promise Act of 2021

 

This is one of our events in the all-day Pride marathon.   Please joins us for this and for others.
