Viewing the Orlando Massacre as an Attack on the LGBT Latino Community

Viewing the Orlando Massacre as an Attack on the LGBT Latino Community

Steven Thrasher, Writer-At-Large for The Guardian US and doctoral fellow in American Studies at New York University, talks about what it’s been like to cover the Orlando massacre as a self-identified queer person of color. He discusses his recent pieces, “Let's not give in to fear after the Orlando shooting,” and "LGBT people of color refuse to be erased after Orlando: 'We have to elbow in," and looks at how the media has covered the attack. 
Event: Steven Thrasher will be speaking on Wednesday, June 22 at 7 p.m. at the Brooklyn Free School in Clinton Hill (372 Clinton Avenue, Brooklyn) on a panel called Solidarity, Not Hate: No Homophobia, No Islamophobia.
