Queer Latinx Experiences at the Intersection of Identities

Queer Latinx individuals live in a complex fabric of intersecting structures of oppression including, but not limited to, racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, poverty, citizenship status, internalized homophobia, internalized racism and linguistic hierarchy. They are required to navigate complex identities that are often not understood or adequately researched, and we don’t have a clear understanding of how they navigate their identities in relation to the structures of oppression. In this BUSSW Equity & Inclusion Speaker Series event, featured speaker Javier Garcia-Perez will discuss current issues facing the queer Latinx community, findings from his 2020 pilot study with queer Latinx individuals, and where we go from here. 1 continuing education credit will be available to social workers licensed in Massachusetts upon successful completion of a brief post-event quiz.
