“Maricón in Macholand: Intersections of Systems of Oppression and Latinx LGBTQ Immigrants.”

Description:

This workshop will cover the foundations for examining how interlocking systems of oppression impact Latinx LGBTQ individuals. It will also encourage you to apply an anti-oppression lens to your work, particularly as we discuss the lives and experiences of Latinx LGBTQ immigrants. Maricón in Macholand will present the unique gifts and challenges the immigrant LGBTQ community faces. Through the power of storytelling, participants will gain knowledge on the LGBTQ experience – family acceptance, life in a Machista environment, culture shock, homosexuality in the Church, resilience, and challenges associated with the healthcare system.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • Understand how the four I’s of oppression work
  • Identify the particular challenges and gifts of the LGBTQ immigrant community
  • Compare and contrast pre and post-migration challenges
  • Analyze the intersectionality of LGBTQ, ethnicity, and documentation status
    identities
